Not much time to write, so here's a quick look at Danny Salazar. First his career:

Trajectory and Movement - from 03/30/2007 to 04/14/2016

Pitch Type Count Freq Velo (mph) pfx HMov (in.) pfx VMov (in.) H. Rel (ft.) V. Rel (ft.)
Fourseam 3542 59.95% 96.00 -5.41 9.71 -2.61 5.93
Sinker 627 10.61% 94.95 -8.41 7.10 -2.74 5.87
Slider 528 8.94% 86.64 1.59 2.14 -2.66 5.85
Curve 131 2.22% 80.93 3.56 -7.47 -2.62 5.88

Split 1038 17.57% 85.86 -4.10 2.47 -2.68 5.91

And now last season:

Trajectory and Movement - from 01/01/2015 to 01/01/2016

Pitch Type Count Freq Velo (mph) pfx HMov (in.) pfx VMov (in.) H. Rel (ft.) V. Rel (ft.)
Fourseam 1548 52.64% 95.94 -5.90 9.74 -2.67 5.88
Sinker 439 14.93% 95.03 -8.55 7.02 -2.82 5.83
Slider 182 6.19% 86.05 1.38 2.01 -2.77 5.77
Curve 119 4.05% 80.85 3.57 -7.50 -2.62 5.87
Cutter 40 1.36% 92.79 -1.49 7.70 -2.74 5.92
Split 613 20.84% 86.06 -4.10 3.21 -2.77 5.83

Salazar lives and dies by the fastball.

Thus far in 2016, Salazar is much the same as the above overall, where righties get the slider almost exclusively, and lefties get more sinker instead.
