Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Seth Lugo has thrown 12,321 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 Curve (79mph) and Fourseam Fastball (93mph), also mixing in a Sinker (92mph), Slider (85mph), Change (87mph) and Cutter (91mph).


In 2024, compared to other RHP:
Their curve has an exceptional bite and has sweeping glove-side movement. Their fourseam fastball has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. Their sinker results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has some natural sinking action. Their slider generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has short glove-side cut. Their change is much firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. Their cutter is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has well above average velo and has little cutting action.
