Dereck Rodríguez

Minnesota Twins

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Dereck Rodríguez threw 3,969 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 Fourseam Fastball (92mph) and Slider (86mph), also mixing in a Curve (77mph) and Change (85mph). He also rarely threw a Sinker (89mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His slider is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2022) has an exceptional bite, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2022) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 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 and has below average velo.
