Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Rowan Wick threw 2,583 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2018 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (95mph) and Curve (77mph), also mixing in a Cutter (93mph) and Slider (82mph). He also rarely threw a Change (92mph) and Splitter (83mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo. His curve has an exceptional bite and has primarily 12-6 movement. His cutter is blazing fast, has good "rise" and has strong cutting action. His slider sweeps across the zone and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2022) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin. His splitter (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' splitters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters, has some natural sink to it, has slight armside fade and has slightly below average velo.
