BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His slider generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities. His fourseam fastball is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo. His curve has little depth and has primarily 12-6 movement.
