His sinker has progressively lost velocity over his three years pitching in the bigs as he came in averaging 97.4 mph in 2016 and it has fallen to 95.6 mph in 2018, however this could be chalked up to his battle with injuries over the past season. Glover did not have great control over this pitch in 2018 allowing 6 walks and a .350 average.
Glover lost three inches of movement on his slider from last year which led to more contact. The batting average against this pitch jumped from .231 to .263, contact rate jumped up from 73.5% to 74.3%, and his whiff% dropped from 14.8% to 10.7%.
Glover has started to trust his changeup more as 2018 was a career-high for usage of the pitch, for good reasons too. A whiff rate of 11.3%, a zone rate of 51.6%, and an O-swing of 53.5% have Glover’s changeup closing in on Money Pitch level rates.
Glover does not use this pitch often, but he uses it at the right time. He did not allow a baserunner off this pitch all throughout 2018 and had a 100% ground-ball rate.
