    Last year, here is what hitters did against his change up:

    LHH - .400/.400/.400 (interesting that no XBH against it).
    RHH - .357/.357/.667

    Now those numbers are only when its put in play, but those numbers are very bad.

    He said when they made contact with his changeup it was obliterated. Not that they hit it well.

    I just showed that above, lefties had an .800 OPS when it was put in play and righting were sitting at 1.024 OPS when it was put in play. The league average against a change up was .319/.319/.502 for an .821 OPS.

    Well, I was confused about your "put in play" term...

    Well its not exactly possible to calculate a strike 1 in terms of an average, so its really only doable based on balls that are either an error, hit, sacrafice or an out.

    No, just stating that is why its calculated with the balls in play, because while a strike 3 is technically an 'out' its basically the same as strike 1 and thats not an out.
