Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Jacob deGrom has thrown 18,375 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2014 and 2021, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2021, he has relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (99mph) and Slider (92mph), also mixing in a Change (91mph). He also rarely throws a Sinker (97mph).


In 2021, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His slider is thrown extremely hard and generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, dives down out of the zone, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2021) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker.
