Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Michael Grove has thrown 3,426 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2021 and 2024, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2024, they have relied primarily on their Slider (87mph), also mixing in a Sinker (96mph), Cutter (93mph) and Slow Curve (80mph). He also rarely throws a Fourseam Fastball (96mph).


In 2024, compared to other RHP:
Their slider generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual and has some two-plane movement. Their sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is blazing fast, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. Their cutter is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is blazing fast, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise" and has strong cutting action. Their slow curve is a real yakker that's separated from their other curveball due to its big drop and slow speed. Their fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 2 of them in 2024) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has much less armside movement than typical and has slightly above average velo.
