Almonte does not use his changeup often, and in the times he has thrown it, he has struggled mightily with his control.

A below-average fastball that doesn’t move or blow you away with velocity. He tends to have more swing-and-miss success up in the zone with this pitch.

His slider moves and drops more than most. It’s a plus pitch, and if he learns to locate it better, could change his entire approach.

Almonte’s primary offering averaged 95.5 mph and featured slight arm-side movement. He initially leaned on his fastball at a 74% rate in June, but diversified with other pitches and threw the four-seamer just 58% in September. While the pitch did have a 50.0 Zone%, it only had a 5.1 SwStr%, 24.1 O-swing% and a 90 Contact%. The pitch also had a worse BB% (12.8%) than K% (10.3%).

Almonte increased his slider use from 19% in June to 41% come September and for good reason—the pitch was filthy. It featured a 40.2 Zone%, 48.1 O-swing% and 24.1 SwStr%, which led to a 45.0 K%. Filthy.

Almonte only threw his changeup 5 times in 2018, so it doesn’t seem to be a major player in his repertoire moving forward.
