Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, José Quijada threw 1,954 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 (95mph), also mixing in a Change (87mph). He also rarely threw a Curve (81mph).


In 2022, compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action, has well above average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His change is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, dives down out of the zone, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His curve is thrown extremely hard, has very little depth, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement.
