Absolutely love how Wacha was attacking guys today during his outing.. here are 2 AB’s in particular that I just loved watching. You can tell that there’s a plan behind each one of his pitches.

Absolutely love how Wacha was attacking guys today during his outing.. here are 2 AB’s in particular that I just loved watching. You can tell that there’s a plan behind each one of his pitches.

🚨Wacha vs Brinson🚨

💥Took the info the batter gave him after the first pitch to set up the rest of the AB. 

💥First pitch Curveball really sets up the whole AB here in my opinion. 

✅ Throws it for a strike 

✅ Changes eye level 

✅ Throws Off Timing 

💥Wacha is able to elevate the Fastball effectively AND throw the Changeup off the same slot he throws the 1-1 Fastball.

🚨Wacha vs Riddle🚨

💥Shows ability to throw Changeup for a strike 0-0.. this not only forces Riddle to respect that pitch to be thrown for a strike but it tells the rest of the hitters that he is using his Changeup for a Strikeout Pitch AND a 0-0 pitch.. 

The 0-1 Curveball, again, for me is crucial.. sets up limitless possibilities for the strikeout pitch. What does Wacha do well with the 0-2 pitch? 

✅ Doesn’t force changeup action

✅ Isn’t too fine

✅ Stays aggressive with arm path
