Jhoan Duran

Minnesota Twins

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Jhoan Duran threw 1,090 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2020 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (101mph) and Curve (88mph), also mixing in a Sinker (96mph). He also rarely threw a Slider (90mph) and Splitter (94mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has slight armside run. His curve is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves and has primarily 12-6 movement. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has heavy sinking action, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is blazing fast and has less armside run than typical. His slider is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, has primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement. His splitter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2022) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' splitters and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters.
