Pitch F/X (MLB Gameday data) sees 11 fastballs and 2 sliders on yesterday’s Bobby Jenks outing:

Pitch Statistics
Pitch Type Avg Speed Max Speed Avg H-Break Avg V-Break Count Strikes / % Swinging Strikes / % Linear Weights Time to Plate
FF (FourSeam Fastball) 97.05 98.9 -4.85 9.24 11 9 / 81.82% 1 / 9.09% -0.7268 0.388
SL (Slider) 88.35 89.5 1.48 1.12 2 1 / 50.00% 1 / 50.00% -0.1499 0.426
Pitch classifications provided by the Gameday Algorithm and may be inaccurate.

Pitch Type LWTS correspond to how many runs were likely to score on a particular pitch based on average run expectancy when each pitch was thrown and what happened as a result. Negative scores indicate more effective pitches.

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.
