Garrett Cleavinger

Tampa Bay Rays

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Garrett Cleavinger threw 1,315 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 Slider (82mph) and Fourseam Fastball (96mph), also mixing in a Sinker (96mph) and Curve (77mph). He also rarely threw a Change (81mph).


In 2022, compared to other LHP:
His slider has exceptional depth, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and has short glove-side cut. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast, has some natural sinking action and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is blazing fast, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has some natural sinking action. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves and has a sharp downward bite. His change (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' changeups, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it.
