- Humber has worked mainly with four pitches this year. He throws a four-seam fastball that's typically around 90-91, a curveball around 80, a changeup in the mid-80s, and a mid-80s cutter that he learned this winter. The cutter looked more like a traditional slider in his most recent start. Humber may also throw a few two-seam sinkers, but not many.
- He's about average in terms of getting ground balls (44% for his career, 43% this year).
- He gives up plenty of contact (16% whiff rate so far this year). The four pitches I've ID'd are all below average at getting swings-and-misses.
- His control has been pretty good so far (fewer than 3 base-on-balls per 9 innings). His career mark is 3.6.
Humber's track record isn't terribly impressive, but this chance with the White Sox might be what he needs to rejuvenate his career.
