BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His curve has an exceptional bite, has sweeping glove-side movement, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves and has slightly below average velo. His cutter is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has extreme cut action. His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slightly below average velo. His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 10 of them in 2016) generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade.
