BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter is blazing fast, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise" and has little cutting action. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His curve has slight glove-side movement. His change is much firmer than usual and has slight armside fade. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has exceptional depth. His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slightly above average velo.
