BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His slider results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and has less than expected depth. His splitter is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities. His fourseam fastball results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His curve has slight glove-side movement and has slightly below average velo. His cutter explodes on the hitter, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters, has surprisingly little cutting action and has slightly above average velo. His change has an extreme amount of backspin, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade.
