|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.

Before the 2009 draft was even over, Baseball America was already looking to the future. After attending numerous high school showcase events and researching 18 summer college leagues and the collegiate national team, our picture of the 2010 draft class began to take shape. Like this year, when 11 of the first 15 players selected were pitchers, the strength of next year’s class appears to be on the mound. Over the past 20 years, there have been just four drafts where 10 or more pitchers were taken within the first 15 picks, and the 2010 draft could mark the first time it’s happened back-to-back. … The 2010 draft is still nine months away and many things can (and will) change between now and then, but the charts above provide the first snapshot of the top talent for next year’s class.
LHP Bryan Morgado was the Sox 3rd round pick in the 2009 draft but didn’t sign.
Stephen Nickrand and Ron Shandler:
Chicago White Sox pitcher Gavin Floyd quietly has become one of the game’s most effective starting pitchers in the second half. He has an 8.1 K/9 and 4.1 K/BB since July 1. In fact, his skills after July 1 are twice as good as they were earlier in the year. The missing piece for Floyd is being able to pitch effectively on the road. He has a 2.47 ERA and strong skills at home, compared with a 5.36 ERA and weaker skills on the road.
If Jake Peavy is healthy next year, the White Sox’s rotation will be very deep, leaving Floyd with little pressure to anchor it. If he can sustain the skill growth he has shown late this year, Floyd could team with Peavy to give the White Sox one of the most potent one-two punches in the American League.
Video here (2:24). Ozzie says there won’t be a pitch count. Peavy will decide how long will he play. Last 10 seconds of the video.
Peavy says he wouldn’t be starting today if he was still playing for San Diego:
”No doubt about it — if this was San Diego right now, I wouldn’t be going out there. ‘Absolutely it means more [because of the division race]. Anytime you have a layoff like I have, you’re excited to get back on the mound. I wish it was under better circumstances, but we’re still mathematically in this thing and have a lot to play for.”
