While only thrown nine times, Gregerson’s changeup came in just four ticks slower than his sinker. Of the four times a batter swung at the pitch, they made contact every swing.

Nothing like a slow-stright fastball to keep batters off-balance. Gregerson allowed an 80% line drive rate on balls in play against his fastball.

Gregerson’s sinker can have some serious action on it. However, it wasn’t all that great in 2018. Actually, it hasn’t been effective over the last two years. It’s something he has to work on, given it’s the pitch he turns to most andd makes his living off.

Gregerson’s slider is pretty nice. He controls it, gets more ground balls than liners or fly outs, and gets strikeouts with it. In the 71 times he threw it, he never walked a batter. That also has to do with when he used it, which displays it’s a pitch he’s only going to use when he’s ahead. The thing is sharp, too.

A pitch Gregerson turned to when he got behind, his fastball had poor numbers in 2018. Part of that being it’s well below average in terms of velocity and it doesn’t move much, making for a hitter’s dream pitch.
