Trent Thornton

Toronto Blue Jays

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Trent Thornton threw 4,626 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2017 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (94mph) and Slider (82mph), also mixing in a Curve (80mph). He also rarely threw a Sinker (93mph), Splitter (85mph) and Cutter (90mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical and has essentially average velo. His slider sweeps across the zone and has some two-plane movement. His curve has an exceptional bite and generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker has surprisingly little armside run and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His splitter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' splitters and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has strong cutting action.
