Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Justin Grimm has thrown 4,547 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2012 and 2016, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2016, he has relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (95mph) and Curve (84mph). He also rarely throws a Sinker using a Two-seam Fastball grip (94mph) and Slider (88mph).

BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo, has slightly less natural movement than typical and has some added backspin. His curve is thrown extremely hard, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2016) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slightly above average velo. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2016) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and is much harder than usual.
