Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Adam Wainwright has thrown 38,084 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2007 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2022, they have relied primarily on their Curve (73mph), Sinker (89mph) and Cutter (84mph), also mixing in a Fourseam Fastball (88mph) and Change (82mph). He also rarely throws a Slider (78mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His curve has an exceptional bite, comes in below hitting speed and has sweeping glove-side movement. His sinker has below average velo, has less armside run than typical and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His cutter comes in below hitting speed, has extreme cut action and has some natural sink. His fourseam fastball comes in below hitting speed, has much less armside movement than typical, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some natural sinking action. His change has slight armside fade and has slightly below average velo. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2022) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone, has exceptional depth and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders.
