Pitch Selection in MLB

MLB_Pitch_Types_2015Data via BaseballSavant.com

On aggregate, pitchers are throwing mostly the same types of pitches in 2015 as they did last season. The share of curveballs (per MLBAM classifications) has declined by a full percentage point, replaced by a slightly greater share of changeups, fastballs and sliders. Four-seam fastballs remain the most common pitch at about 35%, followed by sinkers (including two-seam fastballs) at 22%.
