More Pitch F/X Data from AFL Pitchers-Off the Radar

Joy R. Absalon-US PRESSWIRE

A couple of weeks ago, I looked at a few different pitchers in the Arizona Fall League through the Pitch F/X data supplied by two of the parks via GameDay. This is what I am doing here again, except looking at more and obviously different pitchers. The Arizona Fall League is not known for their pitching, and this year, it seems that the pitching is even worse as there are not many good prospects.

Sometimes the pitch classification has some problems, as evidenced by Bobby Whiting’s change

However, we at least get some data to look at different pitchers. This post will be less words and more data.
