Bruce Zimmermann has thrown 4,716 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2020 and 2024, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2024, they have relied primarily on their Slider (84mph) and Change (84mph), also mixing in a Sinker (89mph), Fourseam Fastball (89mph) and Curve (81mph).


In 2024, compared to other LHP:
Their slider generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, has primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement. Their change is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it. Their sinker has surprisingly little armside run, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has some natural sinking action. Their fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, has less armside movement than typical, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. Their curve is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has a sharp downward bite.
