SoxNet on Daniel Hudson

SoxNet looks on tonight’s Daniel Hudson performance:

On top of that control, he showed an ability to stay consistent with location on all his pitches. He was able to throw a fastball, and follow it up with a changeup or slider in the same vicinity. If you’re looking for a way to keep batters honest and respect all your pitches, that’d be one way to do it.

BTW, here’s what Pitch-F/X had to say about Daniel Hudson outing tonight:

Pitch Statistics (Velocity Histogram)
Pitch Type Avg Speed Max Speed Avg H-Break Avg V-Break Count Strikes / % Swinging Strikes / % Nibbleness Time to Plate
FF (FourSeam Fastball) 94.18 95.3 -8.40 9.51 29 17 / 58.62% 2 / 6.90% 4.26 0.399
CH (Changeup) 84.02 85.4 -10.34 3.62 14 8 / 57.14% 2 / 14.29% 6.12 0.448
SL (Slider) 83.43 83.9 -1.48 3.15 3 2 / 66.67% 1 / 33.33% 7.45 0.454
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.

Inning-by-Inning Pitch Totals
Inning Pitches in Inning Strikes in Inning Strike% in Inning Cumulative Total Pitches
5 17 12 70.59 17
6 17 9 52.94 34
7 12 6 50.00 46
