Banuelos struggles with his changeup command, issuing free passes (14.3% walk rate) at more than double the clip of his punchouts (7.1% strikeout rate), despite achieving an above-average 16.1% swinging-strike rate on the pitch.

Banuelos labored in trying to entice batters out of the zone with his curveball, only mustering a 20.4% chase rate. Opponents posted a brutal .462/.500/.615 slash line against the curve, good for a .472 wOBA.

A former well-regarded prospect beset by injuries, Banuelos deserves commendation for returning to the big leagues for the first time since a 2015 stint with the Braves. That said, his fastball is a weak link in his arsenal: A 32nd-percentile velocity (via Statcast) and flat 6th-percentile spin rate don’t offer much encouragement in the heater.

Banuelos breaks off sliders about a third of the time when he’s toeing the rubber. The pitch holds a 13.6% walk rate, and was responsible for giving up five long balls, inflating his HR/FB percentage to 26.3%. In an arsenal rife with negative pVAL earnings, Banuelos’ slider ranked dead last with a -3.2 pVAL.
