Pittsburgh Pirates

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Max Kranick threw 836 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2021 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (96mph) and Slider (88mph), also mixing in a Curve (78mph). He also rarely threw a Change (90mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has well above average velo and has some added backspin. His slider results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual and has less than expected depth. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2022) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2022) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin and has slight armside fade.
