Franklin German

Boston Red Sox

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Franklin German has thrown 65 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system in 2022, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2022, they have relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (98mph) and Slider (88mph). He also rarely throws a Splitter (84mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast, has some natural sinking action and has slight armside run. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual and has primarily 12-6 movement. His splitter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' splitters and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters.
