David Bednar

Pittsburgh Pirates

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, David Bednar threw 2,333 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2019 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (97mph) and Curve (77mph), also mixing in a Splitter (90mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has well above average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slight armside run. His curve generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His splitter is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' splitters and has surprising cut action.
