Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Travis Lakins Sr. threw 1,665 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 Cutter (92mph), also mixing in a Slider (83mph), Change (89mph) and Curve (81mph). He also rarely threw a Sinker (93mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo. His cutter generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters, has well above average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has strong cutting action. His slider is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone and has some two-plane movement. His change is thrown extremely hard, dives down out of the zone, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite, is slightly harder than usual and has slight glove-side movement. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers.
