Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Robbie Erlin threw 6,950 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2012 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (89mph) and Change (82mph), also mixing in a Curve (76mph) and Slider (79mph). He also rarely threw a Cutter (86mph) and Sinker (90mph).


In 2022, compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His change has surprising cut action, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His curve has a sharp downward bite and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His slider is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone, has exceptional depth and has below average velo. His cutter is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has some natural sink and has strong cutting action. 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, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has surprisingly little armside run.
