Does the push for higher launch angle at the MLB level create a greater market / opportunity for sinkerball pitchers vs high velo guys??
Will pitchers with 88-91 but exceptional movement make a comeback? Seems like if you are not 95+ as a RHP now you have almost no shot.
It figures that if MLB swings are all adding loft & my guy has a FB that sinks this may be a formula for success even if it is below average velo..
Pitches up in the zone are more effective against an uphill swing. Look at what AL pitchers did to Joey Gallo during his rookie season. Pitches with sink are always good but they can run into a swing that starts low and ends high.
Just about to make that point. The elevated fastball is back and I like it!
