Michael Grove

Los Angeles Dodgers

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Michael Grove threw 1,494 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2021 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (94mph), Slider (85mph) and Slow Curve (79mph). He also rarely threw a Change (83mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His slow curve is a real yakker that's separated from his other curveball due to its big drop and slow speed. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2022) generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight cut action and has a lot of backspin.
