Matthew Liberatore

St. Louis Cardinals

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2024, Matthew Liberatore threw 3,447 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2021 and 2023, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, The World Baseball Classic and Spring Training. In 2023, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (94mph) and Curve (76mph), also mixing in a Sinker (94mph), Slider (87mph) and Change (87mph).


In 2023, compared to other LHP:
Their fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical and has well above average velo. Their curve has an exceptional bite, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. Their sinker is blazing fast and has surprisingly little armside run. Their slider is thrown extremely hard, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. Their change is thrown extremely hard and is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups.
