Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Collin McHugh has thrown 8,626 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2011 and 2016, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason, Spring Training and Fall/Winter Ball. In 2016, he has relied primarily on his Cutter (87mph), Fourseam Fastball (91mph) and Curve (73mph), also mixing in a Change (84mph). He also rarely throws a Sinker (90mph) and Slider (79mph).

BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter has strong cutting action. His fourseam fastball results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has below average velo and has a sharp downward bite. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 16 of them in 2016) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly below average velo. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2016) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders.
