Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Julio Urías has thrown 6,638 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2016 and 2021, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2021, he has relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (94mph) and Curve (81mph), also mixing in a Change (87mph). He also rarely throws a Slider (82mph) and Sinker (92mph).


In 2021, compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has well above average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His curve is thrown extremely hard, has sweeping glove-side movement, has little depth and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 14 of them in 2021) sweeps across the zone, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2021) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slightly above average velo.
