Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2024, Nick Pivetta threw 15,869 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2017 and 2023, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2023, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (95mph), Curve (80mph) and Slider (87mph). He also rarely threw a Splitter (85mph).


In 2023, compared to other RHP:
Their fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo and has some added backspin. Their curve has an exceptional bite. Their slider has short glove-side cut. Their splitter has surprising cut action and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' splitters.
