Chris Paddack

Minnesota Twins

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Chris Paddack threw 5,633 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2019 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (94mph) and Change (83mph), also mixing in a Curve (77mph). He also rarely threw a Slider (84mph) and Cutter (89mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His change results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His curve has an exceptional bite and generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 13 of them in 2022) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders and has primarily 12-6 movement. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 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 surprisingly little cutting action.
