Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His cutter is blazing fast, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise" and has little cutting action. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 10 of them in 2017) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2017) generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has slightly above average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2017) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade.
