BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His curve generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual and results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His slider generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, has primarily 12-6 movement, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual and has less than expected depth. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo and has slight armside run. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2016) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has surprisingly little cutting action and has well above average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2016) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin.
