BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has well above average velo, has less armside run than typical and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His curve is thrown extremely hard, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has little depth. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2017) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo.
