Jacob deGrom
New York Mets


60.0% Thrown  93.4 MPH

While he does throw in some Two-Seamers for good measure, deGrom is Four-Seam pitcher he gets an exceptional amount of whiffs (10.9% swinging strike rate) with the pitch by elevating it up-and-away often.


11.0% Thrown  80.4 MPH

deGrom elected to use his Curveball more as a "Get-Me-Over" pitch last season than a strikeout offering, bumping its zone rate tremendously as the whiff rates went down below 10%.


18.8% Thrown  88.6 MPH

deGrom's most trusted secondary pitch is a Slider that he can toss in the zone whenever he wants (49.0% zone rate), while induce groundballs and get the ocassional whiff when he needs one. It's his most flexible pitch and an excellent #2.


10.3% Thrown  85.5 MPH

If you overlook the .298 BABIP from 2016, there's a lot to love about deGrom's Changeup - a 20.8% whiff rate, a 40.6% O-Swing clip and 62.0% allowed groundballs all point to a stellar third option. It's a product of extra vertical drop that is amplified by a sturdy Four-Seamer.
