Sonny Gray

Minnesota Twins

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Sonny Gray threw 22,626 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2013 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (92mph), Sinker (92mph), Curve (79mph) and Slider (82mph). He also rarely threw a Change (87mph) and Cutter (89mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is straight as an arrow, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His curve has an exceptional bite and has slight glove-side movement. His slider sweeps across the zone and has exceptional depth. His change generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual and has slight armside fade. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, has extreme cut action and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters.
