Down from 93 to 91.6 mph in 2018 Oh’s four-seamer was still a very effective pitch with a 31.4% K rate a .271 wOBA allowed and a 7.3 pVal.
Oh used his cutter a touch more in 2018 up to 29.8%. The results were also a little better this past year with a 28% K rate (23% in 2017) and a .248 wOBA allowed.
Similar to 2017, Oh used his changeup sparingly (7.2%) and primarily to left-handers. The results weren’t great with a .318 wOBA allowed and a -2.3 pVal.
Oh’s slowest offering at 74 mph. He also upped its usage to 6.9% (1.8% in 2017). While the pVal was below-average at -1.1, it was decent at mitigating damage evidenced by a .271 wOBA and .231 batting average allowed.
Oh’s sinker was very much an afterthought. Seldom thrown (2.8%) and when he did throw it the results were terrible to the tune of a .400 batting average and .499 wOBA allowed.
The slider was Oh’s least used offering last year at just 2.1%. Of the 24 he threw, 20 were to righties. It had a very good whiff rate last year at 44.4%
