Ryan Thompson

Arizona Diamondbacks

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2024, Ryan Thompson threw 2,771 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2020 and 2023, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2023, they relied primarily on their Sinker (91mph) and Slider (78mph), also mixing in a Fourseam Fastball (92mph). He also rarely threw a Splitter (83mph).


In 2023, compared to other RHP:
Their sinker has heavy sinking action, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly below average velo. Their slider comes in below hitting speed, sweeps across the zone, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. Their fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slight armside run. Their splitter (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 1 of them in 2023) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' splitters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters and has slight cut action.
