Didn’t see one


from the Athletic

Let’s begin by reviewing Mikolas’ ability to tunnel his repertoire (ie. show the same release point of different pitches), particularly his four-seam fastball and slider. Against right-handed batters, only one pitcher in all of baseball “tunneled” the four-seam fastball off the slider better than Mikolas last season. That pitcher was Jacob deGrom, aka the 2018 National League Cy Young Award winner. More impressively, Mikolas effectively tunneled this sequence vs. lefty hitters as well, ranking fifth-best in MLB with an average PreMax of 1.17 inches (even better than deGrom, who took a step back to 51st overall with a PreMax of 1.42 inches).

Is 1.17 inches of PreMax good? Asking for a friend.
