Game 23, Athletics at Mariners
Eveland vs Newer Slimmer Carlos Silva. And what a nice day for it.
Eveland’s pitch mix: 59% fastballs, 22% sliders, 6% curves, 12% changes
Silva’s pitch mix: 85% fastballs, 7% sliders, 8% changeups
Eveland hasn’t gone more than five innings since his first start this year, but even watching his last start against Tampa, you can see he had two distinct pitches working, the fastball and a slider (slider’s a little slower, like 84, but he gets huge movement on it compared to the fastball) and then threw some random stuff occasionally.
Meanwhile, as I flogged continually, Silva’s been throwing that BP-quality fastball/sinker/beach ball all the time.
