Yadier Molina

St. Louis Cardinals

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Yadier Molina threw 40 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system in 2022, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Curve (54mph) and Fourseam Fastball (68mph). He also rarely threw a Change (43mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His curve comes in below hitting speed, has very little depth, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2022) comes in below hitting speed and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2022) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has surprising cut action, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin.
