BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has extreme cut action, has below average velo and has some natural sink. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, has below average velo and has a sharp downward bite. His sinker has less armside run than typical and has slightly below average velo. His fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical and has slightly below average velo. His change is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities.
