BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker is so slow that it is substantially gravitational, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has less armside run than typical. His cutter is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise" and has little cutting action. His slider generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves, has below average velo, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 19 of them in 2016) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 17 of them in 2016) comes in below hitting speed, has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has much less armside movement than typical.
