Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Tanner Rainey threw 2,729 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2018 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (97mph) and Slider (88mph). He also rarely threw a Change (89mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has well above average velo. His slider is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders and is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 6 of them in 2022) is thrown extremely hard, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight cut action and has a lot of backspin.
