Moylan’s sinker marks the foundation of his pitch-to-contact style. With the pitch’s average velocity dropping below 90, opponents certainly had no trouble putting a bat on ball. They hit .324 with a .400 OBP. A 56.3% ground-ball rate is superb for most, but not for someone who has obtained a career 68.2% clip with the pitch through 11 big league seasons. One must wonder how much the 40-year-old has left in the tank after his 2018 halted early due to a forearm injury.

Moylan’s slider wielded a wOBA of .220 or lower in each of his previous seasons before ballooning to a ghastly .398 last season. He yielded six homers with a pitch in 10 seasons before dishing out three in 2018 alone. A velocity dip (77.4 mph) didn’t hurt his cause, so it’s difficult to expect a resurgence in his age-40 campaign.

A junk thrower lucky to reach 90 on the radar gun, Moylan hardly ever takes his changeup out of storage. Although never throwing it more than a handful of times, he induced exactly one swinging strike with the pitch in each of the last four seasons.
