Chicago White Sox

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Michael Kopech has thrown 6,284 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2018 and 2024, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2024, they have relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (99mph), also mixing in a Cutter (91mph) and Slider (86mph). He also rarely throws a Curve (85mph).


In 2024, compared to other RHP:
Their fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair. Their cutter has heavy sink, has well above average velo and has strong cutting action. Their slider generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and has some two-plane movement. Their curve (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 11 of them in 2024) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
