Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Shane Bieber threw 11,002 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2018 and 2022, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (92mph) and Slider (85mph), also mixing in a Curve (82mph) and Cutter (87mph). He also rarely threw a Change (87mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His slider generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual and has a sharp downward bite. His cutter generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has some natural sink. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it.
