BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other LHP:
His curve is thrown extremely hard, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo. His fourseam fastball is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo and has some added backspin. His cutter is blazing fast, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has surprisingly little cutting action and has good "rise". His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 10 of them in 2016) generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups.
