San Francisco Giants

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Sean Hjelle threw 2,130 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 Sinker (93mph) and Slider (84mph), also mixing in a Change (88mph). He also rarely threw a Fourseam Fastball (93mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His sinker results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has some natural sinking action. His slider has primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 17 of them in 2022) has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slight armside run.
