José Fernández

Miami Marlins

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although he has not thrown an MLB pitch in 2021, José Fernández threw 7,166 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2013 and 2016, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2016, he relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (96mph) and Curve (85mph), also mixing in a Change (89mph). He also rarely threw a Sinker (94mph), Slow Curve (75mph) and Cutter (84mph).


In 2016, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has well above average velo. His curve is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has very little depth and has slight glove-side movement. His change is thrown extremely hard, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His slow curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2016) is a real yakker that's separated from his other curveball due to its big drop and slow speed. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2016) comes in below hitting speed, has heavy sink, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, has sweeping cut action and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters.
