Pops it up

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ January 19, 2010 10:16 pm


Now that Candlestick is closed, pop-ups are nearly sure outs. They’re also a sign of hitters being over-powered (in some cases), so it might tell us something about the pitch. All the leaders here are four-seam fastballs, which is to be expected when it comes to finding infield flies.

Highest pop-up rate, 2009 debut

1 Fu-Te Ni .265
2 Clay Zavada .235
3 Feliz .229
4 Daniel Hudson .226
5 Koji Uehara .222
