BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His change dives down out of the zone, is much firmer than usual and has slight cut action. His sinker generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has less armside run than typical. His fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action and has slightly below average velo. His curve is slightly harder than usual. His slider generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 14 of them in 2017) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters and has some natural sink.
