BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, has an obvious tail, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has an obvious tail, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has some natural sinking action. His curve has very little depth, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 13 of them in 2017) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, has below average velo and has slight armside fade.
