Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

José Castillo has thrown 2,183 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2018 and 2024, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2024, they have relied primarily on their Slider (85mph) and Fourseam Fastball (95mph), also mixing in a Sinker (94mph). He also rarely throws a Change (87mph).


In 2024, compared to other LHP:
Their slider (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 12 of them in 2024) has exceptional depth, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and is much harder than usual. Their fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 7 of them in 2024) has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast and has slightly less natural movement than typical. Their sinker (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 3 of them in 2024) has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is blazing fast and has slight armside run. Their change (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 1 of them in 2024) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has surprising cut action and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups.
