Toronto Blue Jays

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Paolo Espino has thrown 6,386 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2017 and 2024, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, Spring Training and Fall/Winter Ball. In 2024, they have relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (88mph) and Curve (71mph), also mixing in a Slider (77mph) and Change (84mph).


In 2024, compared to other RHP:
Their fourseam fastball comes in below hitting speed, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has less armside movement than typical. Their curve has an exceptional bite, comes in below hitting speed, has sweeping glove-side movement and generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves. Their slider comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. Their change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, dives down out of the zone, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade.
