Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Carlos Martinez has thrown 6,138 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2011 and 2016, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and the MLB Postseason. In 2016, he has relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (97mph), Sinker (95mph) and Slider (85mph), also mixing in a Change (88mph). He also rarely throws a Curve (76mph).

BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is blazing fast and has some natural sinking action. His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo, has slight armside run and has some natural sinking action. His slider sweeps across the zone, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2016) has very little depth, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement and has slightly below average velo.
