BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slightly below average velo. His slider results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has short glove-side cut. His splitter results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' splitters. His fourseam fastball results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His curve generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, has slight glove-side movement and has slightly below average velo. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an extreme amount of backspin, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 17 of them in 2017) explodes on the hitter, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has surprisingly little cutting action and has slightly above average velo.
