BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast, has good "rising" action, has less armside movement than typical and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His slider generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has short glove-side cut. His change is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual and has an extreme amount of backspin. His splitter has movement that suggests an extreme amount of backspin, is slightly firmer than usual and has slight armside fade.
