BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other LHP:
His curve is thrown extremely hard, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement, has little depth and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His cutter is blazing fast, has little cutting action and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters. His sinker is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities. His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
