Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Nick Pivetta has thrown 9,592 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), Curve (79mph) and Slider (86mph). He also rarely throws a Change (88mph) and Sinker (92mph).


In 2021, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo, has slightly less natural movement than typical and has some added backspin. His curve has an exceptional bite. His slider results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His change is much firmer than usual and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2021) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker.
