Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Drew VerHagen threw 3,731 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 Sinker (94mph), Slider (81mph) and Fourseam Fastball (95mph), also mixing in a Splitter (89mph) and Curve (78mph). He also rarely threw a Cutter (91mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His sinker generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has well above average velo. His slider sweeps across the zone, has exceptional depth, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has below average velo. His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo. His splitter is thrown extremely hard, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' splitters and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' splitters. His curve has an exceptional bite, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2022) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has well above average velo and has little cutting action.
