Scott Barlow

Kansas City Royals

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Scott Barlow threw 4,551 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2018 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Slider (84mph), Curve (79mph) and Fourseam Fastball (94mph). He also rarely threw a Sinker (93mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His slider has short glove-side cut and has some two-plane movement. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement and generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves. His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, has less armside movement than typical and has essentially average velo. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2022) 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 some natural sinking action.
