BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, is blazing fast, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise" and has little cutting action. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo and has some added backspin. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2016) has sweeping glove-side movement, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 6 of them in 2016) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2016) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade.
