I didn’t get to see the game today but “really good stuff” and only 5 missed bats doesnt add up to me.

But glad to see that he was fairly successful today.  If he can do that more often than not, he will prove to have some value.  Wouldn’t be surprised if it becomes obvious that he would be better in relief.

They couldn’t really square up on him though. Good movement to keep it off the barrel.

Sadly that sort of thing isn't generally repeatable.

Well no but if he had good movement (again, I didn’t see it) and that is sustainable, that can be a recipe for players not squaring up on him that well.

I thought he looked good today, definitely didn't look like he just got "lucky". He was missing barrels, just wasn't efficient.

In some ways he got quite unlucky. The double hays lost in the sun, the come backer that ricocheted off of him, at least one sharp grounder that squeaked under a diving glove and into the OF for a single (not a bad defensive play, but a break he didn’t catch).

I haven't seen that much data concerning pitchers being able to consistently impact launch angle or exit velocity.

i.e., "soft contact"? That basically describes his outing today. I imagine it would correlate with low ERA and BABIP as well as your metrics.
Location and movement, as Palmer would say (as opposed to sheer velocity).

We know that pitchers, as a general rule, can't control babip.  

I'm not sure what we saw was a repeatable skill.

Would be nice if it was.

Pretty sure Zack Britton can consistently impact launch angle.   Don’t know about exit velocity.

He would be an extreme case with something approaching a unique pitch.
