Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Tyler Kinley threw 3,142 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2018 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Slider (90mph) and Fourseam Fastball (96mph). He also rarely threw a Sinker (94mph), Change (89mph) and Curve (84mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His slider is thrown extremely hard, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has less than expected depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His fourseam fastball generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action and has well above average velo. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2022) 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 and has slightly above average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2022) is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2022) is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has little depth.
