- Be sure to check out Michael Salfino's latest article at SNY.tv on pitch type splits for New York ballplayers.
The changeup is baseball's most underrated pitch. The big-league's best changeup masher last year was White Sox DH Jim Thome, who posted a 1.424 BPS. Beltran was the best in New York at dealing with deception (1.082). Following him were Jeter (1.000), Cano (.985), Wright (.804), Reyes (.761), the now-retired Yankee Bernie Williams (.757), Damon (.710) and ex-Met (and current Cub) Cliff Floyd (.709).Definitely some great stuff there.
