Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Sean Newcomb has thrown 8,798 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), Slider (82mph) and Sinker (93mph), also mixing in a Curve (80mph). He also rarely throws a Cutter (90mph) and Change (86mph).


In 2024, compared to other LHP:
Their fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical and has well above average velo. Their slider sweeps across the zone and has exceptional depth. Their sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo and has some natural sinking action. Their curve has an exceptional bite, is slightly harder than usual, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. Their cutter (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 5 of them in 2024) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, is blazing fast, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has some natural sink and has strong cutting action. Their change (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 3 of them in 2024) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, dives down out of the zone, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups and is much firmer than usual.
