BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has some natural sinking action. His fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. 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 slider sweeps across the zone and has exceptional depth. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 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.
