Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Jonathan Hernández has thrown 1,558 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2019 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they have relied primarily on their Sinker (98mph), Slider (88mph) and Change (90mph). He also rarely throws a Fourseam Fastball (96mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His sinker is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, has an obvious tail, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has some natural sinking action. His slider generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual and has some two-plane movement. His change is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an obvious armside fade, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 10 of them in 2022) has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has an obvious tail, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has well above average velo.
