Pitch FX

Salt River Rafters 12, @ Peoria Javelinas (Mets and others) 9Hey, look a box score with Mets farm hands. It shouldn't make me that excited, but it does.

Anyway, this one comes has pitch-fx with velocity readings for pitchers.

The pitch-fx star of the day was Robert Carson who sat 92-95 with his fastball and hit 96 once. He threw 63% of his pitches for strikes (22 of 34). The velocity readings on his change-up (82-86) and slider (81-91) seem a little inconsistent, so I wonder if 1. he really was that erratic, or 2. pitch-fx was misclassifying his pitches. Carson: 1.1, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

On Saturday, the Bingamton Mets played the Portland Sea Dogs in a special minor-league game - the game was in Fenway Park as part of Boston's annual special "Futures at Fenway" event.

Why does this concern us?? Well, just like in the MLB Futures Game, the Futures at Fenway games are played with Pitchf/x, the pitch-tracking camera system that tracks every pitch thrown in the major leagues, TURNED ON.? The data from these games is publically available for anyone to look at, just like the data from normal MLB games.? Which gives us a nice extra look at the pitches of the BMet pitchers who pitched in the eleven inning game.

Five Met Pitchers pitched in the game: Collin McHugh went 6 effective innings, Ricky Brooks then pitched two poor innings, Rhiner Cruz pitched the 9th and 10th innings, Eric Turgeon got the first two outs of the 11th inning but ran into trouble - giving up two runs, and Josh Stinson struck out the final batter of the game.? This post will examine the pitches of the two of those five pitchers: Collin McHugh and Josh Stinson.

Robert Carson started on Tuesday in the Arizona Fall League and threw 58 pitches over 4 innings, giving up just 4 hits (2 doubles, 2 singles) and 1 run while striking out 4 and walking none.? Interestingly, he did so in Peoria, one of the two parks with Pitchf/x cameras set up (Met pitchers have had little games seemingly in these parks so far, which is kind of lame).? As such, we can take a look at what pitches Carson was throwing on that day, their movement and their speed.
