San Francisco Giants

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Alex Wood has thrown 13,675 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2013 and 2021, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2021, he has relied primarily on his Sinker (92mph), Slider (85mph) and Change using a Circle Change grip (86mph).


In 2021, compared to other LHP:
His sinker results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth and generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders. 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, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups and is much firmer than usual.
