Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Zack Wheeler has thrown 25,510 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2013 and 2024, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2024, they have relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (95mph) and Slider (87mph), also mixing in a Sinker (95mph), Curve (82mph) and Splitter (86mph). He also rarely throws a Change (87mph).


In 2024, compared to other RHP:
Their fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has slightly above average velo. Their slider has short glove-side cut, is much harder than usual, has less than expected depth and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. Their sinker has an obvious tail, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo and has some natural sinking action. Their curve generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual, has a sharp downward bite and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. Their splitter is slightly firmer than usual and has slight armside fade. Their change (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 2 of them in 2024) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it.
