BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo. His cutter results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has well above average velo, has good "rise" and has little cutting action. His curve is slightly harder than usual and has slight glove-side movement. His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo. His change is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 19 of them in 2017) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders.
