The pitchability of a player involves all of the following:
- He can throw any pitch anytime which makes him unpredictable.
- The batters in the other line-up that he should get out, he gets out.
- He doesn’t let their best hitters beat them. He’s not afraid to walk or pitch around them.
- He minimizes fastball counts by getting ahead and staying ahead.
- He can throw strikes on both sides of the plate.
- He makes his best pitches when it counts the most. Anyone can throw a good breaking pitch on the black when they are facing the eight hitter with nobody on and his team is up 6-0. Can he hit the black with the bases loaded and the third hitter is up with the winning run on second?
- He consistently repeats his delivery.
- He throws just as well from the stretch as he does from the wind-up.
- He works quick but doesn’t rush.
- He is consistently around the knees with all his pitches.
