BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has below average velo and has some natural sinking action. His cutter generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters, has little cutting action and has slightly below average velo. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2017) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly below average velo.
