Anderson doesn’t use this pitch too often, but when he does, it locates low and away from righties when he’s ahead in the count.
A pitch he uses even less often than his changeup, Anderson used this pitch 3% of the time in 2019 and located it in the zone 49% of the time.
Despite an impressive 90th-percentile spin rate (according to Baseball Savant), batters made contact on 84.2% of Anderson’s four-seamers, knocking the pitch around for a .362 wOBA.
This is Anderson’s put-away pitch. He uses it more than a quarter of the time when he’s ahead in the count. He throws it away from righties hoping to grab swings and misses late in the count.
