Luis Castillo

Seattle Mariners

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Luis Castillo threw 14,563 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2017 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (97mph), Sinker (97mph), Change (88mph) and Slider (87mph). He also rarely threw a Cutter (96mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast, has some natural sinking action, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slight armside run. His sinker is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, has an obvious tail and has some natural sinking action. His change is thrown extremely hard, has an obvious armside fade and dives down out of the zone. His slider generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2022) is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has surprisingly little cutting action.
