Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Tanner Houck has thrown 6,230 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2020 and 2024, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2024, they have relied primarily on their Slider (83mph), Sinker (94mph) and Splitter (89mph). He also rarely throws a Cutter (88mph) and Fourseam Fastball (94mph).


In 2024, compared to other RHP:
Their slider sweeps across the zone, has exceptional depth and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. Their sinker has heavy sinking action, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. Their splitter is thrown extremely hard, has dives down out of the zone, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' splitters, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' splitters and has slight armside fade. Their cutter has heavy sink, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has little cutting action. Their fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 1 of them in 2024) has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo.
