Kyle Hendricks has thrown 16,343 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2014 and 2021, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2021, he has relied primarily on his Sinker (87mph), Change (80mph) and Fourseam Fastball (87mph), also mixing in a Curve (73mph).


In 2021, compared to other RHP:
His sinker is so slow that it is substantially gravitational, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has some natural sinking action. His change has below average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His fourseam fastball comes in below hitting speed, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some natural sinking action. His curve comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has sweeping glove-side movement, has a sharp downward bite and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
