A Collaboration between BrooksBaseball.net and Baseball Prospectus - Pitch classifications provided by Pitch Info LLC


Although he has not thrown an MLB pitch in 2014, Les Walrond threw 160 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system in 2008, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2008, he relied primarily on his Slider (79mph) and Fourseam Fastball (92mph), also mixing in a Sinker (91mph) and Curve (76mph). He also rarely threw a Change (83mph).
