Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Matt Festa threw 1,628 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2018 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Slider (83mph) and Fourseam Fastball (93mph). He also rarely threw a Sinker (94mph) and Change (91mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His slider sweeps across the zone and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo and has less armside run than typical. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2022) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it.
