Robbie Ray - 2021 Frequency of Pitches by Pitch Speed Baseball Savant

Notes: The Jays have barely gotten anything from George Springer in the first year of his massive free agent contract. He’s been limited to five games due to injuries. Tuesday, in his first appearance back from the IL, Springer went 0-for-4...Ray has recorded at least five strikeouts in 11 consecutive starts.

  2. CF Starling Marte
  3. 1B Jesús Aguilar
  4. RF Adam Duvall
  5. SS Miguel Rojas

Trevor Rogers - 2021 Frequency of Pitches by Pitch Speed Baseball Savant

Notes: Garrett Cooper (lumbar strain) is beginning his minor rehab assignment with Triple-A Jacksonville. It’s possible that he’ll be ready to be activated from the IL by the end of the weekend...Jon Berti is among the few qualified MLB hitters in June who have at least as many walks as strikeouts.
