Broxton swings and misses at more hittable pitches than any other player I can remember

I think Keon Broxton is a useful MLB player. I'm glad he's a Brewer. But pitches like that last one are my biggest source of frustration. That's not one of Jansen's best. It's 92, middle of the zone, and hanging up a bit. Got to do something with it. Can't keep coming up empty on pitches in the middle of the zone.

Edit: Yikes, another one from Arcia.

Arcia right down the middle 93.

It must be hard to pick up the ball from Jansen. 92-94 is blown by guys

The Dodgers must really trust Jansen. I mean, wow. Just giving Pina a base? Make 'em pay.

Jansen showboating with looking at Pina during wind-up. Hope Braun crushes one but expecting K.

Edit: Yep. Braun in massive slump.

There's a reason Jansen's stat line is like a video game.

Jansen is the premier closer in the game. He's never had a season of less than 13 K/9, and hasn't had a WHIP over .8 in three years. If it was as simple as hitting pitches "right down the middle", he wouldn't be putting up Playstation numbers year after year.

His pitches look like they have both early AND late movement. Like they swerve slightly out of his hand and then dip (I think) just a tiny bit when the ball gets to the plate. Our guys looked completely fooled on fastballs.

In high school, I didn't throw hard, but my fastballs tailed into righties (I'm a lefty). I didn't have early movement, but that late movement on a pitch that isn't coming in hard at all messed everybody up.

Among all MLB players with 200+ plate appearances this season, Keon Broxton has the lowest Z-contact % (% of contact on swings on pitches in the zone) of all, with 68.9%. For comparison, Eric Sogard is 4th with 95%. Chris Carter is the only other player under 70%, in fact the only other one below 72%.

The thing I love about Knebel's curveball is that his arm action gives absolutely nothing away. Usually, there are very slight tells in someone's delivery to differentiate fastballs from curveballs, but Knebel's delivery looks exactly the same for both.

This is one of those that you probably didn't need stats on because well, it's just so apparent that he had a contact problem. It is very interesting to see an ex-Brewer on there who (at a different stage of his career) had very little to no value as a player. Someone earlier mentioned that if we traded him they'd be scared he would he would drop 40 bombs. This stat right here probably keeps him from doing that.
