Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Justin Verlander has thrown 48,199 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 Fourseam Fastball (95mph) and Slider (87mph), also mixing in a Curve (79mph). He also rarely throws a Change (86mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has slightly above average velo and has some added backspin. His slider is much harder than usual. His curve has a sharp downward bite and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has slight armside fade.
