BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has some natural sinking action. His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His change generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups. His slider has exceptional depth, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2016) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and has slight glove-side movement.
