San Diego Padres

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2024, Joe Musgrove threw 15,573 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2016 and 2023, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2023, they relied primarily on their Curve (81mph), Fourseam Fastball (93mph) and Cutter (90mph), also mixing in a Slider (82mph), Change (87mph) and Sinker (93mph).

In 2023, compared to other RHP:
Their curve has an exceptional bite, is slightly harder than usual and has slight glove-side movement. Their fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, has much less armside movement than typical, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo. Their cutter is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly above average velo, has some natural sink and has strong cutting action. Their slider sweeps across the zone, has exceptional depth and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. Their change generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it. Their sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run and has some natural sinking action.
