Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Lucas Sims has thrown 4,967 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2017 and 2024, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2024, they have relied primarily on their Slider (84mph) and Fourseam Fastball (94mph). He also rarely throws a Curve (80mph) and Change (90mph).


In 2024, compared to other RHP:
Their slider sweeps across the zone and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. Their fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. Their curve (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 12 of them in 2024) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has sweeping glove-side movement, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has a sharp downward bite. Their change (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 6 of them in 2024) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it.
