Toronto Blue Jays

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Yimi Garcia threw 5,212 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2013 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 (95mph), also mixing in a Cutter (89mph), Slider (82mph), Sinker (94mph) and Change (87mph). He also rarely threw a Curve (85mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo. His cutter results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has some natural sink and has strong cutting action. His slider sweeps across the zone and has exceptional depth. His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has an obvious tail, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His change has an obvious armside fade, dives down out of the zone, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2022) is thrown extremely hard, has very little depth, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has primarily 12-6 movement.
