Quick Takes Arizona Diamondbacks:

Brandon Pfaadt is an extreme flyball pitcher (39.7% FB% per the leading projection system, THE BAT) and should be helped pitching in the #23 HR venue in the majors in today's game.

  • This pitcher's skill set matches up particularly well with the park he's in today, which may lead to better-than-usual performance.

Eugenio Suarez has a ton of pop (93rd percentile) if he makes contact, but that's never a guarantee (29.2% K%). Today, however, opposing pitcher Cole Irvin struggles to strike batters out (16th percentile K%) — great news for Suarez.

  • If he is less likely to strikeout, he'll be more likely to make contact, which is often hard, home-run contact.

In today's game, Eugenio Suarez is at a disadvantage facing the league's deepest LF fences given that he hits his flyballs to the pull field at a 35.3% rate (88th percentile).

  • This player's skill set does not match up particularly well with the park he's in today, which may lead to worse-than-usual performance.

Quick Takes Baltimore Orioles:

Cole Irvin's curveball rate has spiked by 16.5% from last season to this one (15.2% to 31.7%) .

  • Because curveballs are one of the most effective pitches to use, a pitcher who alters his pitch mix to use more of them will often see more success as a result.

Jorge Mateo's footspeed has decreased this season. His 30.08 ft/sec Statcast Sprint Speed last season sits at 29.55 ft/sec now.

  • Slow players tend to get fewer hits because they can't beat out groundballs, fewer extra base hits, and fewer stolen bases.

The Baltimore Orioles have been the 2nd-luckiest offense in MLB this year, according to the leading projection system (THE BAT X), and are likely to perform worse in the future

  • When teams overperform their projected talent level, markets may overvalue them even while they are likely to perform worse in the near future.
