Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Lance Lynn threw 29,897 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2011 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (93mph) and Cutter (89mph), also mixing in a Sinker (92mph) and Slider (82mph). He also rarely threw a Change (86mph) and Curve (83mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His cutter has heavy sink. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run and has some natural sinking action. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone and has exceptional depth. His change is slightly firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it. His curve is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual, has little depth and has primarily 12-6 movement.
