Milwaukee Brewers

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Brett Anderson has thrown 17,350 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2009 and 2021, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2021, he has relied primarily on his Sinker (89mph) and Change (82mph), also mixing in a Curve using a Knuckle Curve grip (76mph), Cutter (86mph) and Slider (82mph). He also rarely throws a Fourseam Fastball (89mph).


In 2021, compared to other LHP:
His sinker results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has some natural sinking action. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His curve using a knuckle curve grip has a sharp downward bite and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His cutter generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has strong cutting action. His slider is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders and has exceptional depth. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 13 of them in 2021) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has slightly below average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical.
