Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Erich Uelmen has thrown 127 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system in 2022, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2022, they have relied primarily on their Sinker (93mph), Slider (84mph) and Fourseam Fastball (94mph), also mixing in a Change (88mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His sinker has heavy sinking action, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo. His slider generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2022) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, dives down out of the zone, is much firmer than usual and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
