Shane McClanahan

Tampa Bay Rays

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Shane McClanahan has thrown 122 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system in 2021, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2021, he has relied primarily on his Slider (90mph) and Fourseam Fastball (98mph), also mixing in a Change (89mph). He also rarely throws a Curve (85mph).


In 2021, compared to other LHP:
His slider is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. 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 and has some natural sinking action. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2021) is thrown extremely hard, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2021) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
