Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Scott Feldman has thrown 20,054 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2007 and 2016, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2016, he has relied primarily on his Cutter (89mph), Sinker (91mph) and Curve (77mph). He also rarely throws a Change (85mph), Fourseam Fastball (92mph) and Slow Curve (72mph).

BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has strong cutting action. His sinker has less armside run than typical and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin and has slight armside fade. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2016) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His slow curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2016) is a real yakker that's separated from his other curveball due to its big drop and slow speed.
