Norwood’s splitter came in nine ticks slower than his fastball, which is decent velo seperation. The pitch hit the zone just 15.4% of the time, but did get a 20.5% SwStr% and 48.5% O-Swing rate.

Changeup
15.9% Thrown 88.9 MPH
Slider
13.2% Thrown 84.7 MPH

Norwood threw his primary pitch more than 70% of the time and got decent results out of it (1.3 pVal). The pitch showed good velocity, averaging 97.6 mph and topping out at 100.5. On the downside, the pitch had a 13.2 K% and a 13.2 BB%.

Norwood’s changeup complemented his four-seamer well in terms of velocity, having an 8 mph difference between the two pitches. That being said, the positives ended there. The pitch got hit hard by a 50.0 LD%, which resulted in a .444 BAA.

Norwood’s slider earned a positive pVal (0.4) in a small sample size, in which he had a good 45.7 Zone%. One part of the pitch that doesn’t match is the 2.9 SwStr% along with a 28.6 K%. We’ll have to see if a bigger sample in 2019 tells us which rate regresses.
