BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has an obvious tail and has below average velo. His cutter generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters, has little cutting action, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has slightly below average velo. His curve has very little depth, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has primarily 12-6 movement. His sinker has little sinking action compared to a true sinker, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has slightly below average velo. His change is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2016) results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has primarily 12-6 movement.
