BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has less armside run than typical and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His splitter generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' splitters, has movement that suggests a lot of backspin and has slight armside fade. His fourseam fastball is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has some added backspin. His slider results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has short glove-side cut. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has slight glove-side movement and has slightly below average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 14 of them in 2016) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has an extreme amount of backspin. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2016) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise" and has slightly below average velo.
