Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Hunter Brown has thrown 2,062 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2021 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they have relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (96mph), Curve (82mph) and Slider (92mph). He also rarely throws a Change (89mph) and Sinker (96mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has well above average velo, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His curve has an exceptional bite, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement and is much harder than usual. His slider is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. His change is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His sinker (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' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is blazing fast, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slight armside run.
