Janson Junk

Milwaukee Brewers

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Janson Junk threw 1,665 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 (93mph) and Slider (82mph), also mixing in a Curve (79mph). He also rarely threw a Change (88mph), Splitter (87mph) and Sinker (92mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His slider sweeps across the zone and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His splitter is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters and is slightly firmer than usual. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has surprisingly little armside run.
