Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Sam Hentges has thrown 166 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system in 2021, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2021, he has relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (95mph) and Curve (81mph), also mixing in a Slider (87mph).


In 2021, compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast, has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His curve has an exceptional bite, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves and is much harder than usual. His slider is thrown extremely hard, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders.
