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..
Both pitchers can have success. I think the question is who can have more success when they are not at 100%? Or in other words, who will have more success with mistake pitches?
Lincecum is a great example. I guy who had plus velocity that was dominate who could miss with any pitch and still have success. Than a guy who had plus movement with below average velocity that hitters could just wait for a mistake and crush it.
