Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Ken Waldichuk has thrown 808 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 (94mph) and Slider (81mph), also mixing in a Change (82mph). He also rarely throws a Curve (75mph).


In 2022, compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has well above average velo. His slider sweeps across the zone, has exceptional depth and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change dives down out of the zone, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, has a sharp downward bite and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
