Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Dylan Cease has thrown 2,985 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2019 and 2021, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2021, he has relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (96mph) and Slider (86mph), also mixing in a Curve (79mph) and Change (80mph). He also rarely throws a Sinker (94mph).


In 2021, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, has well above average velo and has some added backspin. His slider generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth, has short glove-side cut and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve has an exceptional bite and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change has surprising cut action, has below average velo, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has an extreme amount of backspin. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2021) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical, has slightly above average velo and has virtually no sinking action reminiscent of a true sinker.
