BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some added backspin. His slider has less than expected depth and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His sinker is so slow that it is substantially gravitational, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups.
