Bobby Jenks is done for the year after suffering a pulled right calf muscle during pregame workouts at U. S. Cellular Field on Tuesday.”I heard the pop, felt it and it’s not good,” said Jenks, after the White Sox dropped an 8-6 decision to the Twins. “It’s unfortunate with the timing with everything, the way our team has been going.

His fastball can get up to 90 m.p.h., but sits more in the 88-89 range, and has a lot of sink. Lefties have struggled with his frisbee slider, but it will likely need improvement if he is going to project as more than a righty specialist. …

Pitch classifications provided by the Gameday Algorithm and are unfortunately often inaccurate.
Clicking individual pitch types will provide individual velocity histograms for each pitch.

Nibbleness is the arithmetic mean of the distance of each pitch, in inches, from the edge of a normalized strikezone. Lower indicates “more Nibbley”.
Time to Plate is the time, in seconds, that it takes an average pitch of this type to reach the plate. This is strongly correlated with velocity, but also factors in movement.
