Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Fernando Cruz has thrown 189 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system in 2022, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2022, they have relied primarily on their Slider (87mph), Splitter (82mph) and Fourseam Fastball (94mph). He also rarely throws a Sinker (93mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His slider results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and is much harder than usual. His splitter generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' splitters, has surprising cut action, has some natural sink to it, has below average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' splitters. His fourseam fastball has slightly above average velo. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo.
