Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although he has not thrown an MLB pitch in 2022, Patrick Corbin threw 21,756 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2012 and 2021, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2021, he relied primarily on his Slider (81mph), Sinker (93mph) and Fourseam Fastball (92mph). He also rarely threw a Change (82mph), Curve (66mph) and Cutter (86mph).


In 2021, compared to other LHP:
His slider has some two-plane movement. His sinker has less armside run than typical and has slightly above average velo. His fourseam fastball has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His change has surprising cut action. His curve comes in below hitting speed, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2021) has heavy sink, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has strong cutting action.
