non-swing call rate - percentage of called strikes on pitches not swung at (called strike divided by called strikes plus balls)
Now for some plate locations, split up into five horizontal and vertical regions (dividing the zone into thirds with two "out of zone" areas on either side). For these purposes, the strikezone extends one foot from either side of the center of the plate and includes pitches 1.5 to 3.5 feet above the ground, normalized for the batter's strikezone.
I'll be posting some league averages at THT soon; for now I'll say that Cahill's sinker, vertically, is where most sinkers are. Horizontally, he is more apt to throw it inside to lefties and away to righties than is the typical major leaguer.
Closing thoughts: his sinker is good, his four-seamer less so. I'd probably say that his curveball is his best out-pitch, based on this and last year's performance. After that hiatus in April, the slider is back and is being thrown a few times per game; it really just seems like a "show-me" pitch and not one that Cahill's going to use to put away hitters. Overall, he has a good repertoire of pitches to pick up groundballs and a strikeout when he needs to, and he seems to be getting better all the time.
