Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Adam Kolarek threw 2,975 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2017 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Sinker (89mph) and Slider (79mph), also mixing in a Change (83mph) and Fourseam Fastball (92mph). He also rarely threw a Cutter (83mph).


In 2022, compared to other LHP:
His sinker has heavy sinking action and is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His slider has short glove-side cut, has below average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His change dives down out of the zone, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2022) has heavy sink, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has below average velo and has little cutting action.
