Just some trends with Martis to consider based on his limited amount of innings this year:
- He is throwing pitches like so: Fastball (42%), Changeup (23%), Slider (18%), Curveball (13%). He has decreased the number of fastballs from last year and has increased the amount of sliders by 9% and Changeup/Curveball by 3%. These numbers could draw closer to last year's with more innings, though.
- His first pitch strikes are up to 67.5%, last year he was throwing first pitch strikes 50% of the time.
- Last game, he was averaging 90.3 MPH on his four seamer and had it top out at 93.2 MPH. The fastball also had some good break on it, about 9 inches vertical/6 inches horizontal, he will have another good outing if he can do the same tonight.
- He did not have any innings with more than 20 pitches and had two innings with just 8 pitches.
