Luis Ortiz

Pittsburgh Pirates

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Luis Ortiz has thrown 1,671 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2021 and 2022, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2022, they have relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (99mph) and Slider (88mph), also mixing in a Sinker (99mph) and Change (91mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, has an obvious tail and has some natural sinking action. His slider generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual and has some two-plane movement. His sinker is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has some natural sinking action. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2022) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it.
