Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Jae Kuk Ryu threw 104 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2007 and 2008, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2008, they relied primarily on their Sinker (91mph) and Splitter (82mph). He also rarely threw a Fourseam Fastball (91mph) and Curve (76mph).


In 2008, compared to other RHP:
His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2008) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slightly below average velo and has some natural sinking action. His splitter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2008) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' splitters and has below average velo. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2008) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has much less armside movement than typical and has slightly below average velo. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2008) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and has slightly below average velo.
