Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Stephen Strasburg threw 24,045 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 (90mph), Curve (77mph), Sinker using a Two-seam Fastball grip (90mph) and Change (85mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has below average velo, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has a sharp downward bite. His sinker using a two-seam fastball grip is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run, has slightly below average velo and has some natural sinking action. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2022) dives down out of the zone, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade.
