Alex Wood has thrown 7,452 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 is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His curve is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change generates a very high amount of 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 3 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 essentially average velo, has slightly less natural movement than typical and has some added backspin.
