Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Nick Lodolo threw 1,785 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 Fourseam Fastball (95mph), Curve (82mph) and Sinker (94mph), also mixing in a Change (88mph). He also rarely threw a Cutter (89mph).


In 2022, compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has heavy sinking action, has an obvious tail, has well above average velo and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His curve is thrown extremely hard, has very little depth, has sweeping glove-side movement, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker has heavy sinking action, has well above average velo and has slight armside run. His change is thrown extremely hard, dives down out of the zone, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is blazing fast and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters.
