Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Nick Pivetta has thrown 7,661 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2017 and 2021, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2021, he has relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (95mph) and Slider (86mph), also mixing in a Curve (80mph). He also rarely throws a Change (89mph).


In 2021, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo, has slightly less natural movement than typical and has some added backspin. His slider has some two-plane movement. His curve has an exceptional bite, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2021) 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 slight armside fade.
