Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although he has not thrown an MLB pitch in 2016, Brad Peacock threw 4,265 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2010 and 2015, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, Spring Training and Fall/Winter Ball. In 2015, he relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (90mph), also mixing in a Slider (80mph), Change using a Circle Change grip (78mph) and Curve using a Knuckle Curve grip (74mph).

BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, explodes on the hitter, has less armside movement than typical, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2015) comes in below hitting speed, has exceptional depth and has short glove-side cut. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 14 of them in 2015) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 10 of them in 2015) has below average velo, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement.
