Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Louie Varland has thrown 1,203 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 (94mph) and Slider (86mph), also mixing in a Change (84mph). He also rarely throws a Curve (82mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it.
