Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Jorge López has thrown 4,235 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2015 and 2021, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2021, he has relied primarily on his Sinker (95mph), Fourseam Fastball (95mph) and Curve (82mph), also mixing in a Change (88mph). He also rarely throws a Slider (86mph).


In 2021, compared to other RHP:
His sinker generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. His curve generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2021) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders and has primarily 12-6 movement.
