Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Bowden Francis has thrown 2,041 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2022 and 2024, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2024, they have relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (94mph) and Curve (74mph), also mixing in a Splitter (84mph) and Slider (84mph).

In 2024, compared to other RHP:
Their fourseam fastball has essentially average velo. Their curve has sweeping glove-side movement, has below average velo and has a sharp downward bite. Their splitter is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' splitters, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' splitters and has some natural sink to it. Their slider generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders.
