Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Connor Overton threw 743 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2021 and 2022, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Slider (81mph), Fourseam Fastball (91mph) and Sinker (91mph), also mixing in a Change (85mph). He also rarely threw a Cutter (91mph) and Curve (79mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His slider has below average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His fourseam fastball generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has slight armside run and has slightly below average velo. His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His change generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 9 of them in 2022) generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has surprisingly little cutting action, has well above average velo and has good "rise". His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and has primarily 12-6 movement.
