A quick look at Lonnie Chisenhall's spray charts

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

I have been looking at Lonnie Chisenhall's spray charts, and noticed one thing that really stood out: Lonnie is murdering breaking pitches.

Here are three spray charts for this season from Brooks Baseball. This does not include today's game.

Just doing some counting of the dots, if my numbers are correct, here are the results broken down by pitch category.

Hard: 22 singles, 10 doubles, 2 home runs, 44 outs. 1.080 OPS, .641 slugging percentage. 23 Line drives, 28 ground balls, 23 fly balls, 4 pop-ups.

Offspeed: 2 singles, 2 doubles, 1 home run, 17 outs; .680 OPS, .455 slugging percentage. 7 line drives, 6 ground balls, 8 fly balls, 1 pop-up.

Breaking: 11 singles, 4 doubles, 3 home runs, 11 outs. 1.690 OPS, 1.069 slugging percentage. 11 line drives, 8 ground balls, 10 fly balls, no pop-ups.

Two things to keep in mind. First, there seems to be a double and a home run missing for some reason. Lonnie has 17 and 7, respectively; this all adds up to 6 and 16. Second, obviously this includes only balls hit in fair territory, without considering all the other pitches that are swung at and missed, or taken for a ball, etc.
