MLB Friday 4.22 Stats Insights: Brewers vs Phillies, Freddy Peralta & Ranger Suarez; Harper, Hoskins seek hits
Today's contest between the Phillies and the Brewers pits THE BAT's #17-ranked SP (Freddy Peralta) against the #49-ranked SP (Ranger Suarez). The rundown on Peralta tells us that he leans on his four-seamer fastball 52.3% of the time and keeps hitters off balance with a slider (26.2%). Suarez is a sinker guy (44.7%) who brings a changeup as his most-trusted secondary offering. Advanced stats (namely, FIP) tell us that Peralta deserves something like a 5.07 ERA, compared to his actual ERA of 11.57. On that front, Suarez's ERA sits at 5.87 and his FIP at 5.03.
Former Phillie Andrew McCutchen has exhibited some bad exit velocity metrics in recent games, averaging 95.4-mph on the top 5% of his batted balls over the past 7 days.
