Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Shawn Armstrong has thrown 5,283 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2015 and 2024, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2024, they have relied primarily on their Sinker (94mph), Fourseam Fastball (93mph) and Cutter (90mph), also mixing in a Slider (83mph).


In 2024, compared to other RHP:
Their sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. Their fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. Their cutter has extreme cut action, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sink. Their slider (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 10 of them in 2024) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses 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.
