Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Norge Ruiz has thrown 980 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system in 2022, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2022, they have relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (93mph) and Slider (86mph), also mixing in a Change (85mph). He also rarely throws a Curve (80mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is straight as an arrow and has essentially average velo. His slider has short glove-side cut and has some two-plane movement. His change has surprising cut action and has some natural sink to it. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has little depth.
