San Francisco Giants

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Alex Cobb has thrown 17,834 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2011 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they have relied primarily on their Splitter (89mph) and Sinker (95mph), also mixing in a Curve using a Knuckle Curve grip (84mph). He also rarely throws a Fourseam Fastball (95mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His splitter is thrown extremely hard, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' splitters, has some natural sink to it and has slight armside fade. His sinker has well above average velo and has slight armside run. His curve using a knuckle curve grip is thrown extremely hard, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and has primarily 12-6 movement. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo.
