Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Nick Wittgren threw 5,147 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 (92mph), Change (84mph) and Cutter (88mph), also mixing in a Sinker (91mph) and Slider (82mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has some natural sinking action, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His change dives down out of the zone. His cutter generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters. His sinker has slight armside run. His slider is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders.
