Elvin Rodriguez

Tampa Bay Rays

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Elvin Rodriguez threw 580 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system in 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (93mph) and Slider (82mph), also mixing in a Change (87mph) and Curve (78mph). He also rarely threw a Sinker (92mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His slider has exceptional depth and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change is slightly firmer than usual and has slight armside fade. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 14 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker.
