San Diego Padres

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

José Castillo has thrown 1,404 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2018 and 2022, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2022, they have relied primarily on their Slider (83mph) and Fourseam Fastball (94mph). He also rarely throws a Sinker (94mph) and Change (91mph).


In 2022, compared to other LHP:
His slider has short glove-side cut and has some two-plane movement. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has heavy sinking action, has much less armside movement than typical, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has well above average velo. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run, has well above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2022) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight cut action and has some natural sink to it.
