BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical and has essentially average velo. His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His change generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His slider sweeps across the zone and has exceptional depth. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2017) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and has slight glove-side movement.
