Kyle Dowdy

Baltimore Orioles

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2024, Kyle Dowdy threw 1,805 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2019 and 2023, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2023, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (96mph) and Cutter (90mph), also mixing in a Slider (83mph). He also rarely threw a Curve (79mph) and Change (87mph).

In 2023, compared to other RHP:
Their fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has well above average velo. Their cutter has heavy sink, has sweeping cut action, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has slightly above average velo. Their slider sweeps across the zone, has exceptional depth and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. Their curve has an exceptional bite and generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves. Their change (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 9 of them in 2023) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin.
