Fernando Cruz

Non-MLB

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Fernando Cruz threw 260 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system in 2022, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Slider (87mph), Splitter (82mph) and Fourseam Fastball (94mph). He also rarely threw a Sinker (94mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His slider is much harder than usual and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. 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 generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 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 and has slightly above average velo.
