Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Buck Farmer threw 6,720 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2014 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (95mph), Slider (83mph) and Change (89mph). He also rarely threw a Sinker (93mph).


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, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. His slider has short glove-side cut, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His change is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, dives down out of the zone and has slight armside fade. His sinker (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' sinkers, has an obvious tail, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo.
