Tampa Bay Rays

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Zach Eflin has thrown 14,239 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2016 and 2024, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2024, they have relied primarily on their Sinker (92mph) and Cutter (88mph), also mixing in a Curve (80mph), Slider (81mph) and Fourseam Fastball (93mph). He also rarely throws a Change (87mph).

In 2024, compared to other RHP:
Their sinker has heavy sinking action, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. Their cutter is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has some natural sink and has strong cutting action. Their curve has slight glove-side movement. Their slider sweeps across the zone, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, has below average velo and has some two-plane movement. Their fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action and has essentially average velo. Their change (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 16 of them in 2024) dives down out of the zone, is much firmer than usual, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade.
