Alex Wood has thrown 7,993 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2013 and 2016, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2016, he has relied primarily on his Sinker (91mph) and Curve
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker has less armside run than typical and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His curve is thrown extremely hard, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball (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' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has good "rising" action, has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical.
