Chris Stratton

St. Louis Cardinals

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Chris Stratton threw 8,240 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2016 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (93mph) and Curve (81mph), also mixing in a Slider (87mph) and Change (87mph). He also rarely threw a Sinker (93mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, is slightly harder than usual and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His slider has short glove-side cut, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2022) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has some natural sinking action.
