Brian Wilson

Los Angeles Dodgers

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although he has not thrown an MLB pitch in 2021, Brian Wilson threw 5,954 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2008 and 2014, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2014, he relied primarily on his Cutter (89mph) and Fourseam Fastball (94mph), also mixing in a Sinker (92mph) and Curve (77mph). He also rarely threw a Change (86mph), Slider (89mph) and Knuckleball (66mph).


In 2014, compared to other RHP:
His cutter results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has some natural sink. His fourseam fastball has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His sinker generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has some natural sinking action. His curve results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2014) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight cut action and is slightly firmer than usual. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2014) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, has much less depth than expected and has primarily 12-6 movement. His knuckleball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2014) flutters and floats unpredictably toward the plate.
