Locke St. John

New York Mets

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Locke St. John threw 219 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2019 and 2022, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (90mph) and Slider (78mph), also mixing in a Change (85mph) and Sinker (90mph). He also rarely threw a Cutter (86mph).


In 2022, compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly below average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider comes in below hitting speed, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2022) dives down out of the zone, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups and is slightly firmer than usual. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 6 of them in 2022) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has heavy sinking action and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2022) has heavy sink, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters.
