Adalberto Mejía

Chicago White Sox

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although he has not thrown an MLB pitch in 2021, Adalberto Mejía threw 2,762 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2016 and 2019, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2019, he relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (93mph) and Slider (85mph), also mixing in a Change (82mph) and Sinker (92mph). He also rarely threw a Curve (80mph).


In 2019, compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has some natural sinking action, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His sinker results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2019) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual and has little depth.
