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 sinker generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has slight armside fade. His slider has exceptional depth and generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders. His cutter explodes on the hitter, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, has surprisingly little cutting action, has well above average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 13 of them in 2017) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has sweeping glove-side movement, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slightly below average velo.
