A Look at Athletics Pitchers’ Velocity Metrics


Andrew Chafin

His Fastball is below average in terms of velocity and he throws it on average 92.0 miles per hour. The lack of a meaningful change in velocities is a problem if Andrew Chafin wants to continue using a Changeup in his arsenal. The difference between his Fastball and Changeup is 7.0. We are not able to compare his Four Seam Fastball to his Curveball because he does not feature both pitches in his repertoire. He throws a softer slider than the average pitcher, his slider velocity is only 82.5 miles per hour.

Chris Bassitt

His Fastball is below average in terms of velocity and he throws it on average 93.0 miles per hour. The lack of a meaningful change in velocities is a problem if Chris Bassitt wants to continue using a Changeup in his arsenal. The difference between his Fastball and Changeup is 7.6. His Four Seam Fastball varies greatly in velocity from his Curveball. This difference in speeds really can mess with opposing hitters as far as their timing is concerned. This difference is 21.2 miles per hour! His slider is among the slowest in velocity. It is just 75.4 miles per hour.

Lou Trivino

He throws an above-average Fastball in velocity and he throws it on average 95.9 miles per hour. The difference between his average Four Seam Fastball and Changeup in terms of velocity is 8.5.

He does not feature a slider or he does not throw it enough to qualify.

It is only a 13.6 MPH difference. He does not feature a slider or he does not throw it enough to qualify.
