Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some added backspin. His cutter explodes on the hitter, has surprisingly little cutting action, has well above average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters. His change is slightly firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His sinker generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slightly below average velo.
