Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Charlie Morton has thrown 25,775 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2008 and 2021, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2021, he has relied primarily on his Curve using a Knuckle Curve grip (81mph) and Fourseam Fastball (96mph), also mixing in a Sinker using a Two-seam Fastball grip (95mph), Slider (87mph) and Splitter (86mph).


In 2021, compared to other RHP:
His curve using a knuckle curve grip has sweeping glove-side movement, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and is slightly harder than usual. His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has well above average velo and has slight armside run. His sinker using a two-seam fastball grip is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has an obvious tail, has well above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His slider is much harder than usual, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His splitter has an obvious armside fade, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' splitters, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' splitters, has some natural sink to it and is slightly firmer than usual.
