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.

Excellent!

UPDATE: J.J. has more on EJ’s un-hittable slider.

A.J. agrees:

“I remember facing him,” said A.J. Pierzynski, who had the pleasure of catching Jackson in the White Sox’ 5-1 win over Tampa Bay before 38,579 at U.S. Cellular Field. “You didn’t want him to get ahead of you because then it was, ‘Oh boy, I’ve got to try to hit this slider.’ It’s as good as any slider there is.”
