Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Charlie Morton has thrown 24,166 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2008 and 2021, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2021, he has relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (95mph) and Curve using a Knuckle Curve grip (80mph), also mixing in a Sinker using a Two-seam Fastball grip (94mph) and Slider (88mph). He also rarely throws a Splitter (86mph).


In 2021, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has heavy sinking action, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. His curve using a knuckle curve grip has sweeping glove-side movement, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and is slightly harder than usual. His sinker using a two-seam fastball grip is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has an obvious tail, has well above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His slider is much harder than usual, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His splitter has an obvious armside fade, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters, has some natural sink to it and is slightly firmer than usual.
