Brandon Hughes

Chicago Cubs

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Brandon Hughes threw 952 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system in 2022, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (93mph) and Slider (83mph). He also rarely threw a Sinker (93mph) and Change (86mph).


In 2022, compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has some natural sinking action, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. His slider generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2022) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it.
