Featured Game: Washington at Atlanta, 16:05 ETRegarding Who Pitches for WashingtonRight-hander Stephen Strasburg (53.0 IP, 70 xFIP-, 1.8 WAR) pitches on their behalf.
A Notable Comment Regarding StrasburgHeres a current comment notable due to who made it regarding Strasburg:
Chipper Jones on #Strasburg: He has got the best Steven Johnson Jersey stuff, the best repertoire of pitches that Ive seen on anyone single pitcher. #Nats #MLB
William Ladson (@washingnats) May 25, 2012
What We Can Say Concerning the Aforementioned RepertoireAccording to PITCHf/x, heres Strasburgs repertoire this year, combined with the typical velocity and use of each pitch:
Four-Seam Fastball: 96.0 mph, 47.0% Two-Seam Fastball: 94.8 mph, 16.4% Antwaun Woods Jersey Curveball: 80.3 mph, 21.4% Changeup: 88.5 mph, 15.1%
What Else We are able to Say About the Aforemented RepertoireWhile its hard to for all of us (read: the current author) to say objectively that Strasburgs repertoire is the greatest within the league (or that Chipper Jones has seen), something we do know is the fact that, based on pitch-type linear weights, none of his (i.e. Strasburgs) pitches have ever profiled as below-average throughout his three years in the majors.
Additionally, Another Thing We Can SayA third thing we are able to have to say is, lets trust Chipper Jones, how about.
A Note on the Camera Angle HereAtlantas center-field camera angle is probably the very best in the league. This is actually the very first time Strasburg may have pitched in front of it this year and only the second time hes done so in his career (June Nate Palmer Jersey 28th, 2010).
