BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities. His curve generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His slider is thrown extremely hard, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. His change is much firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers.
