Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Jack Flaherty has thrown 14,137 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2017 and 2024, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2024, they have relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (94mph) and Slider (85mph), also mixing in a Curve (78mph). He also rarely throws a Change (86mph), Sinker (91mph) and Cutter (89mph).


In 2024, compared to other RHP:
Their fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. Their slider has short glove-side cut and has some two-plane movement. Their curve generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and has slight glove-side movement. Their change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it. Their sinker generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run and has some natural sinking action. Their cutter (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 1 of them in 2024) has heavy sink, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, has sweeping cut action and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters.
