BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His slider results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2016) has primarily 12-6 movement, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has little depth.
