Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, MacKenzie Gore threw 1,452 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2021 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, Spring Training and Fall/Winter Ball. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (95mph), also mixing in a Curve (81mph), Slider (87mph) and Change (85mph).

In 2022, compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical and has well above average velo. His curve has primarily 12-6 movement, is much harder than usual, has a sharp downward bite and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His slider is thrown extremely hard, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups and is much firmer than usual.
