Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2024, Brad Hand threw 13,178 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2011 and 2023, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2023, they relied primarily on their Slider (81mph) and Fourseam Fastball (93mph), also mixing in a Sinker (93mph). He also rarely threw a Cutter (87mph).

In 2023, compared to other LHP:
Their slider sweeps across the zone, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. Their fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo. Their sinker has less armside run than typical, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sinking action. Their cutter (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 10 of them in 2023) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, has extreme cut action, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has some natural sink.
