Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Alex Wood has thrown 18,453 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2013 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2022, they have relied primarily on their Sinker (92mph) and Slider (84mph), also mixing in a Change using a Circle Change grip (86mph). He also rarely throws a Fourseam Fastball (92mph).

In 2022, compared to other LHP:
His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo. His slider has exceptional depth. His change using a circle change grip is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, dives down out of the zone and is much firmer than usual. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2022) 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 and has essentially average velo.
