Luis García

San Diego Padres

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Luis García threw 6,870 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2013 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Sinker (99mph) and Slider (83mph), also mixing in a Splitter (89mph). He also rarely threw a Fourseam Fastball (97mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His sinker is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair and generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His slider generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His splitter is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' splitters and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 19 of them in 2022) has heavy sinking action, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast and has less armside movement than typical.
