Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2024, José Suarez threw 6,097 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2019 and 2023, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2023, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (92mph), Change (82mph) and Slider (81mph), also mixing in a Sinker (91mph). He also rarely threw a Cutter (88mph) and Curve (77mph).


In 2023, compared to other LHP:
Their fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. Their change dives down out of the zone and generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups. Their slider sweeps across the zone and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. Their sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. Their cutter (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 19 of them in 2023) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has slightly above average velo. Their curve (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 4 of them in 2023) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement.
