Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 17 of them in 2017) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has slightly below average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 10 of them in 2017) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has less armside run than typical. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 10 of them in 2017) results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and is slightly harder than usual. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2017) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, dives down out of the zone, is much firmer than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight cut action. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2017) has heavy sink, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has strong cutting action.
