Taylor Widener

Arizona Diamondbacks

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Taylor Widener threw 2,720 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2019 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (94mph), also mixing in a Slider (84mph) and Change (85mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His change results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
