Jeremy Hellickson has thrown 14,832 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2010 and 2016, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and the MLB Postseason. In 2016, he has relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (91mph) and Change (81mph), also mixing in a Curve using a Knuckle Curve grip (77mph), Sinker (90mph) and Cutter (86mph). He also rarely throws a Slider (82mph).

BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has an obvious tail and has slightly below average velo. His change generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slightly below average velo. His curve has an exceptional bite and generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has slightly below average velo. His cutter generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise", has little cutting action and has slightly below average velo. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 6 of them in 2016) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, has much less depth than expected and has primarily 12-6 movement.
