Dunn’s changeup had a small sample size last year, but in those nine pitches he struggled with control, as only two of them generated strikes. While he did not generate any whiffs with it, he was able to prevent any opponents from reaching base.
Dunn struggled commanding his fastball, as nearly half (39) of all 80 he threw were a ball. He also couldn’t get many whiffs (9%), but did only allow one hit in eight at-bats, so there is still some positivity to gain from it all.
The slider is Dunn’s biggest weapon and it showed, as he was able to get an excellent 38% whiff rate along with four strikeouts in 10 at-bats. It was also his most accurate pitch, with 30 of the 47 finding the strike zone. Looking forward, he will have to work on putting himself in good counts with his other pitches to really utilize his slider, since it will be what separates him as a punchout machine.
