Couple of Hunter Greene notes:

Two starts totaling 8 innings (4.2/3.1)...10 H, 6 BB, 13 K.

He has thrown 176 pitches. Just one changeup.

Pitches: Fastball 115, Slider 59, Change 1.

Last year he threw the change-up 5.4% of the time.

Opponents batting average

Fastball .261 last year, .304 this year.

Slider .170 last year, .273 this year.

They are squaring up his pitches more often and harder when they do:

Hard hit % 40.1 last year, 47.6 this year

Exit velocity 89.7 last year, 92.7 this year

He certainly has not been efficient: Pitches per inning

2022: 17.5

2023: 22.0

He's clearly still a work in progress. Remember, he's only 23 years old and has just 26 MLB starts/133 innings under his belt.

He didn't pitch in college. He missed a year due to Tommy John.

He missed a year due to no minor league season (Covid)
