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.

Congratulations to Philip Humber. Congratulations to Don Cooper too. His pitchers have 2 perfect games in the last 3 years!

Humber only started throwing a slider last year after Coop taught him:
