Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 16 of them in 2017) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2017) has below average velo, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2017) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth, is slightly harder than usual and has primarily 12-6 movement. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2017) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, explodes on the hitter, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has below average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical.
