BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has slightly above average velo. His slider results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2016) results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin and is slightly firmer than usual. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2016) has very little depth, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and is slightly harder than usual.
