Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

José Urquidy has thrown 4,754 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2019 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2022, they have relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (94mph), also mixing in a Change (86mph), Curve (78mph), Cutter (88mph) and Slider (80mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some added backspin. His change has a lot of backspin, is slightly firmer than usual and has slight armside fade. His curve has an exceptional bite. His cutter has heavy sink, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters and has strong cutting action. His slider comes in below hitting speed, sweeps across the zone and has some two-plane movement.
