Josh Fleming

Pittsburgh Pirates

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Josh Fleming has thrown 4,807 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2020 and 2024, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season, the MLB Postseason and Spring Training. In 2024, they have relied primarily on their Sinker (90mph), Change (83mph) and Cutter (86mph), also mixing in a Slider (78mph).


In 2024, compared to other LHP:
Their sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has heavy sinking action, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. Their change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and dives down out of the zone. Their cutter results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has some natural sink. Their slider (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 15 of them in 2024) comes in below hitting speed, sweeps across the zone, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement.
