Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Jacob Barnes has thrown 6,123 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2016 and 2024, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2024, they have relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (95mph) and Cutter (89mph), also mixing in a Slider (85mph).


In 2024, compared to other RHP:
Their fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo. Their cutter generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has extreme cut action and has some natural sink. Their slider (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 18 of them in 2024) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement.
