Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Tanner Roark has thrown 18,909 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2013 and 2021, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2021, he has relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (91mph), Slider (86mph) and Curve (73mph), also mixing in a Sinker using a Two-seam Fastball grip (90mph) and Change (82mph).


In 2021, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical and has slightly below average velo. His slider is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders and has much less depth than expected. His curve has an exceptional bite, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has below average velo, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His sinker using a two-seam fastball grip is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slightly below average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 19 of them in 2021) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has slightly below average velo.
