Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Jake Reed threw 670 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2016 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Slider (82mph) and Sinker (92mph), also mixing in a Cutter (91mph). He also rarely threw a Change (83mph) and Fourseam Fastball (93mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His slider sweeps across the zone and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders. His sinker has heavy sinking action, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has an obvious tail. His cutter is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has surprisingly little cutting action and has slightly above average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 10 of them in 2022) 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 fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2022) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has heavy sinking action, has an obvious tail, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo.
