Madison Bumgarner

Arizona Diamondbacks

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Madison Bumgarner threw 36,575 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2009 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Cutter (87mph) and Fourseam Fastball (91mph), also mixing in a Curve (78mph) and Change (85mph). He also rarely threw a Sinker (91mph) and Slow Curve (63mph).


In 2022, compared to other LHP:
His cutter has extreme cut action, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sink. His fourseam fastball has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His curve has little depth, is slightly harder than usual, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His sinker generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His slow curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2022) is a real yakker that's separated from his other curveball due to its big drop and slow speed.
