Gott hardly used his changeup and when he did, he struggled to throw strikes, hitting the zone just 9.4% of the time.
Gott’s primary off-speed pitch earned a 34.3% K%, but got hit very hard. The .522 BABIP that the pitch allowed is particularly concerning.
Gott’s fastball hit the zone 61.1% of the time and the pitch allowed a wRC+ of 66.
Gott threw just 13 sliders and they were primary used as chase pitches. While the pitch did have a 42.9% K%, it also allowed a 160 wRC+.
Gott has a hard sinker for his primary pitch thrown over 50% of the time. With this hard velocity and great horizontal movement, he gets about 66% groundballs on his balls in play. His contact excessively high so he will need to start generating swings and misses to improve pitch effectiveness.
As his main offspeed pitch, Gott got outs throwing his curve. However, those outs were not via swinging strikes as you may expect with his only breaking pitch. For a more effective curve he’ll need to find a way to get those swings and misses.
Gott’s fastball does have some zip but it has dropped a few mph. He allows too many fly balls that do result in a few too many home runs.
