Tonight, the Yankees will be facing Mark Buehrle who is coming into tonight’s game with a 10-3 record and I thought it would be fun to look at how he’s been pitching so far this season.
Here is where he likes to throw the ball. He likes using the entire plate:
Overall Buehrle’s holding opposing batters to a .256/.308/.372/.680 line, a .291 BABIP and a .298 wOBA. His K/BB ratio is 55/26.
This is how he pitches to righties:
Righties are batting .272/.321/.388/.709 with three home runs and 41 strikeouts.
This is how he pitches to lefties:
Lefties are batting .216/.277/.333/.610 with one home run and 14 strikeouts.
So far in 2014, batters have had the most success against Buehrle when he throws his fastball. They’re batting .298/.380/.404/.783 conversely, Buehrle has his highest strikeout rate (18.3%) on his fastball. His most successful pitch seems to be his cutter which is holding opposing batters to a .167/.250/.208/.458 line.
He’s given up four home runs all season: Two of them have come on his changeup and two have come on his fastball.…
