Manuel Rodríguez

Chicago Cubs

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Manuel Rodríguez has thrown 466 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2021 and 2022, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2022, they have relied primarily on their Sinker (96mph) and Slider (87mph), also mixing in a Fourseam Fastball (95mph). He also rarely throws a Change (84mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His sinker is blazing fast and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth, is much harder than usual and has primarily 12-6 movement. His fourseam fastball is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has well above average velo. His change (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' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it.
