Heath Hembree

Tampa Bay Rays

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Heath Hembree threw 6,638 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2012 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (95mph) and Slider (84mph). He also rarely threw a Curve (80mph) and Cutter (93mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has slightly above average velo. His slider results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and has less than expected depth. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2022) generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2022) is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise" and has strong cutting action.
