BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter is blazing fast, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise" and has little cutting action. His fourseam fastball results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo and has some added backspin. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement and has a sharp downward bite. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 19 of them in 2016) has less armside run than typical, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 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.
