The Change: Collin McHugh and Bad Fastballs | FanGraphs Fantasy Baseball

Nice analysis from Eno Harris.

For how often he throws his breaking balls, McHugh is still getting excellent whiffs on those pitches. But don’t let that blind you to the fact that his fastball is not very good. With every tick he loses on the pitch, the more likely he is to give up home runs on it. He’s been hiding the pitch since he got in the league, but there’s not really any place to hide the fastball further when you’re throwing it less than anybody else in baseball not named R.A. Dickey.
