Yesterday, I penned (typed?) a post about how I wasn’t expecting much out of Dustin Moseley during last night’s game. Well, during the game against the Indians last night, I was very, very pleasantly surprised.
After a rocky first inning during which he threw 31 pitches, Moseley settled down and ended up throwing six solid innings, allowing one earned run on four hits and two walks while striking out four. He also had a .261 WPA, the highest of the game. Way to go, Dustin. That’s a hell of a spot start. Let’s jump into the Pitch F/X and see how Mr. Moseley got the job done last night at the Jake (yes, I know it’s called Progressive Field but I refuse to call it that; it’s forever Jacobs Field in my mind).
Moseley threw a total of 83 pitches, 55 of them for strikes (66.27%).
His four seamer, he threw 37 (25 strikes), averaged 90.45 MPH and he maxed out at 92.5 MPH. He didn’t get any swings and misses on the four seamer, but he was throwing it for strikes which allowed him to set up his non-fastball pitches.
He threw 39 non-fastballs last night–13 changeups (10 strikes), 9 sliders (6 strikes), and 17 (10 strikes) curveballs. He got two whiffs on the deuce and one on the change.
Moseley also got eight ground balls compared to three fly balls against the Indians, which is always nice to see.
So it seems we got a glimpse of Moseley’s game: use the fastball to set up the offspeed stuff and get them to hit the ball on the ground. Dustin mixed his pitches very well last night and if he can keep doing that, the Yankees will have found a reliable fill in.
