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 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”.
