Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Garrett Richards has thrown 16,423 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2010 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they have relied primarily on their Slider (89mph), Change (90mph) and Fourseam Fastball (94mph). He also rarely throws a Curve (77mph) and Sinker (95mph).

In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His slider is thrown extremely hard, has exceptional depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change is thrown extremely hard, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, is straight as an arrow and has slightly above average velo. His curve has an exceptional bite, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2022) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run, has well above average velo and has some natural sinking action.
