Jake Woodford

St. Louis Cardinals

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Jake Woodford threw 2,443 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2020 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Sinker (92mph), Slider (82mph) and Fourseam Fastball (93mph), also mixing in a Curve (76mph). He also rarely threw a Change (86mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His sinker has less armside run than typical, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has some natural sinking action. His slider sweeps across the zone, has exceptional depth and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His fourseam fastball is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His curve has an exceptional bite, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slightly below average velo. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups and is slightly firmer than usual.
