Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has below average velo, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some added backspin. His sinker has little sinking action compared to a true sinker, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly below average velo. His slider is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, has below average velo, has primarily 12-6 movement, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slightly below average velo and has some natural sink to it. His slow curve is a real yakker that's separated from his other curveball due to its big drop and slow speed.
