Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Dylan Cease has thrown 7,675 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 Slider (87mph) and Fourseam Fastball (97mph), also mixing in a Curve (81mph). He also rarely throws a Splitter (77mph) and Change (80mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His slider generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast, has much less armside movement than typical and has some added backspin. His curve has an exceptional bite, has primarily 12-6 movement, is slightly harder than usual and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His splitter comes in below hitting speed, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' splitters and has movement that suggests an extreme amount of backspin. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 17 of them in 2022) has below average velo, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin.
