Once or twice a game, maybe. That wouldn't skew the numbers. A starter throws 100 pitcher, relievers 50-75. One or two tricky shake offs is trivial, though I doubt most MLB pitchers don't shake off pitches just to get in batters heads.


There are intentional shakeoffs and there are also ways the pitcher can tell the catcher what he wants to throw w/o shaking off (its too hard to explain, but basically you swipe ur glove as u come set.)

It would definently be an interesting stat to look at though

Its not arrogant or anything. The pitcher has the best feel for the game, more than the catcher and the coach, he is in control and knows whats going on what pitches feel comfortable and what pitch is ON.
