Sam Hentges has thrown 3,563 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2019 and 2024, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2024, they have relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (95mph) and Curve (81mph), also mixing in a Slider (88mph) and Sinker (94mph).


In 2024, compared to other LHP:
Their fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has well above average velo, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly less natural movement than typical. Their curve has an exceptional bite, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves and is much harder than usual. Their slider is thrown extremely hard and is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders. Their sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is blazing fast, has surprisingly little armside run and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers.
