BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter explodes on the hitter, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has surprisingly little cutting action and has well above average velo. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some added backspin. His sinker 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 primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement. His change is slightly firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His curve has slight glove-side movement.
