Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Daniel Bard threw 6,917 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2009 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Sinker (98mph) and Slider (88mph). He also rarely threw a Fourseam Fastball (98mph), Change (90mph) and Cutter (97mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair and has some natural sinking action. His slider is thrown extremely hard, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has short glove-side cut. His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His change is thrown extremely hard, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2022) is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has surprisingly little cutting action.
