Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Bowden Francis threw 42 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system in 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (91mph) and Curve (73mph), also mixing in a Slider (82mph). He also rarely threw a Change (83mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has below average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2022) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, has below average velo and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2022) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an obvious armside fade and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
