Cody Poteet

Kansas City Royals

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Cody Poteet threw 1,142 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2021 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Change (88mph), Fourseam Fastball (95mph) and Slider (86mph), also mixing in a Sinker (94mph). He also rarely threw a Curve (79mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His change is much firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider has exceptional depth, has short glove-side cut and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His sinker generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 14 of them in 2022) results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement.
