Pittsburgh Pirates

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Chase De Jong has thrown 2,390 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2017 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they have relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (93mph) and Slider (83mph), also mixing in a Curve (78mph). He also rarely throws a Change (86mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His slider has exceptional depth, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
