BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has some natural sink. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo and has slight armside run. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2017) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has surprising cut action, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has an extreme amount of backspin.
