Jake Walsh

St. Louis Cardinals

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Jake Walsh threw 225 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2021 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, Spring Training and Fall/Winter Ball. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (96mph) and Curve (82mph), also mixing in a Change (84mph). He also rarely threw a Slider (87mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has well above average velo and has slight armside run. His curve has an exceptional bite, is slightly harder than usual and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 13 of them in 2022) generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 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 primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement.
