Pitch Framing Newsbeat

Sunday, September 25, 2016

New York Mets’ hidden MVP: Their pitch framing - Mets Blog- ESPN

But what’s distinct about the Mets is this: The Giants and Dodgers each have one great pitch-framer (Buster Posey and Yasmani Grandal) and the Cubs have two (Miguel Montero and David Ross). The Mets have three.

What’s the tangible impact?

On a game-by-game basis, take Friday night’s win as an example. Rivera and d’Arnaud had a great game. They got 5.5 more strikes than would have been expected from the pitches that Phillies’ hitters took. It was their sixth-best game of the season in that regard

On a broader basis, the Mets led the league in called-strike rate last season and lead again in 2016. Bartolo Colon and Jacob deGrom ranked 4-5 in the NL in strikeout-to-walk ratio last season. Noah Syndergaard ranks second in 2016 (though admittedly he’s more reliant on swinging strikes). Addison Reed’s 6.6 strikeout-to-walk rate dwarves any of his previous four seasons. Jerry Blevins’ ratio is the second-best in his career.
