San Francisco Giants

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although he has not thrown an MLB pitch in 2022, Tommy Hanson threw 11,345 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2009 and 2013, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2013, he relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (90mph) and Slider (81mph), also mixing in a Curve (73mph). He also rarely threw a Change (82mph) and Sinker (91mph).


In 2013, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has below average velo, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical and has some added backspin. His slider comes in below hitting speed, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and has some two-plane movement. His curve has an exceptional bite, comes in below hitting speed and has slight glove-side movement. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has surprising cut action, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin and has slightly below average velo. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2013) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has an obvious tail and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers.
