  • 2 is also nothing new, that is the damage cluster known as barrel zone;
  • 3 is a rarity for Javier, balls hit on a downward angle therefore grounders;
  • 4 is almost a subset of the barrel zone, one that hurts even more in terms of avgxwOBA, these are what your broadcaster would call no doubters;
  • 5 turns out to be the weirdest cluster, the one full of no-man’s land dropping bloops;
  • 6 is 3 with less punch and more overswings, our slow rollers;
  • 7 is what a flyball pitcher wants, absurdly high LAs and balls popping out harmlessly, because batters just got unders;
  • 8 is some EV short and a LA late, the warning tracks.
