St. Louis Cardinals

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

James Naile has thrown 197 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system in 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they have relied primarily on their Sinker (92mph), also mixing in a Curve (82mph), Cutter (88mph), Change (86mph) and Fourseam Fastball (92mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His sinker has heavy sinking action, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His curve generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual, has little depth, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His cutter is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters and has some natural sink. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2022) dives down out of the zone, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and is slightly firmer than usual. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 14 of them in 2022) has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical.
