Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Bryan Shaw threw 12,680 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2010 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (94mph) and Cutter (90mph), also mixing in a Curve (83mph), Slider (85mph) and Sinker (93mph). He also rarely threw a Change (82mph) and Splitter (89mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, is straight as an arrow, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo. His cutter has heavy sink, has extreme cut action, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has slightly above average velo. His curve is much harder than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and has primarily 12-6 movement. His slider has short glove-side cut and has some two-plane movement. His sinker has surprisingly little armside run, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His change results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight cut action, has slightly below average velo and has some natural sink to it. His splitter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2022) is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' splitters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters and has some natural sink to it.
