BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His splitter comes in below hitting speed, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' splitters and has slight armside fade. His fourseam fastball comes in below hitting speed, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slight armside run and has some added backspin. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 19 of them in 2016) comes in below hitting speed, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters.
