Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Jesse Chavez threw 17,326 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2008 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Cutter (89mph) and Sinker using a Two-seam Fastball grip (91mph), also mixing in a Change (85mph). He also rarely threw a Curve (77mph), Fourseam Fastball (91mph) and Slider (82mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His cutter generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise" and has little cutting action. His sinker using a two-seam fastball grip has slight armside run and has some natural sinking action. His change dives down out of the zone, is slightly firmer than usual, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His curve generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has sweeping glove-side movement, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has little depth. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 6 of them in 2022) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has slightly below average velo. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement.
