Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other LHP:
His curve is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement and has little depth. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His sinker is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 16 of them in 2017) has surprisingly little cutting action and has well above average velo.
