Alex Vesia

Los Angeles Dodgers

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Alex Vesia threw 1,966 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2020 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (94mph) and Slider (85mph). He also rarely threw a Change (86mph).


In 2022, compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has much less armside movement than typical, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has well above average velo and has some added backspin. His slider has short glove-side cut and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and is much firmer than usual.
