BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider is thrown extremely hard and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His sinker generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo, has less armside run than typical and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His splitter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2017) has surprising cut action, is much firmer than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' splitters and has some natural sink to it.
