Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Josh Winckowski has thrown 3,443 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 Cutter (90mph) and Sinker (95mph), also mixing in a Slider (86mph) and Change (92mph). He also rarely throws a Fourseam Fastball (95mph).


In 2024, compared to other RHP:
Their cutter has heavy sink, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly above average velo and has strong cutting action. Their sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. Their slider has exceptional depth, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has short glove-side cut. Their change is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an obvious armside fade and has some natural sink to it. Their fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 18 of them in 2024) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action and has slightly above average velo.
