Ross Stripling has thrown 2,289 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2016 and 2017, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2017, he has relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (93mph) and Slider (89mph), also mixing in a Curve (81mph) and Change (85mph). He also rarely throws a Cutter (90mph) and Sinker (91mph).
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has some added backspin. His slider is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. His curve generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement, has a sharp downward bite and is slightly harder than usual. His change results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight cut action, has a lot of backspin and is slightly firmer than usual. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2017) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly above average velo, has some natural sink and has strong cutting action. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2017) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has surprisingly little armside run.
