Tampa Bay Rays

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Brooks Raley has thrown 2,747 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2012 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2022, they have relied primarily on their Slider (82mph) and Sinker (91mph), also mixing in a Cutter (88mph) and Change (86mph). He also rarely throws a Fourseam Fastball (91mph) and Curve (80mph).


In 2022, compared to other LHP:
His slider sweeps across the zone, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His sinker has heavy sinking action. His cutter has extreme cut action, has well above average velo and has some natural sink. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, dives down out of the zone, is much firmer than usual and has slight armside fade. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2022) has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has sweeping glove-side movement, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves and is much harder than usual.
