Miami Marlins

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Anthony Bender threw 1,438 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 Sinker (98mph) and Slider (85mph), also mixing in a Change (90mph). He also rarely threw a Fourseam Fastball (98mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has heavy sinking action, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair and has slight armside run. His slider has exceptional depth, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has short glove-side cut. His change is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, dives down out of the zone, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2022) has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers.
