The movement on Smith’s four-seamer was average, but it didn’t produce many whiffs and allowed a 34.6% line drive rate. Opponents hit .324 against it with a matching ISO. Smith also occasionally mixed in a sinker that opponents hit .286 against.
Smith’s cutter had below average movement and whiffs, but managed to get results, allowing a .143 average with the help of a .154 BABIP.
Of the 83 sliders Smith threw, not a single one left the yard, though hitters didn’t struggle much with making contact either. Still, the results were solid, with the pitch allowing just a .235 average against with the help of a .250 BABIP.
The curveball had below-average drop. It was thrown less than 100 times, and one of the five pitches hit in the air left the yard. Batters hit .324 against it
Smith threw his change-up less than 20 times, so the sample size is likely too small to draw many conclusions. I got decent whiffs though, with a 66.7% groundball rate.
