Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in many more 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 groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. 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, is slightly firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it. His slider generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and has some two-plane movement. His curve generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
