Devin Smeltzer

Miami Marlins

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Devin Smeltzer threw 2,415 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2019 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (89mph) and Change (82mph), also mixing in a Curve (75mph), Cutter (85mph) and Slider (77mph). He also rarely threw a Sinker (87mph).


In 2022, compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His change dives down out of the zone, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His curve has a sharp downward bite, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His cutter has extreme cut action, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has slightly below average velo. His slider comes in below hitting speed, sweeps across the zone, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2022) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has below average velo and has less armside run than typical.
