Robert Suarez

San Diego Padres

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Robert Suarez threw 974 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system in 2022, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (98mph) and Change (89mph), also mixing in a Sinker (97mph) and Cutter (95mph). He also rarely threw a Curve (81mph) and Slider (87mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His change is thrown extremely hard, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His sinker is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His cutter is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise" and has little cutting action. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, is slightly harder than usual, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders and is much harder than usual.
