Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Alex Cobb has thrown 14,924 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2011 and 2021, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2021, he has relied primarily on his Splitter (87mph) and Sinker (92mph), also mixing in a Curve using a Knuckle Curve grip (82mph). He also rarely throws a Fourseam Fastball (93mph).


In 2021, compared to other RHP:
His splitter generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' splitters, is much firmer than usual, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' splitters, has some natural sink to it and has slight armside fade. His sinker generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His curve using a knuckle curve grip is much harder than usual, results in more flyballs 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 6 of them in 2021) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slight armside run.
