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 is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change has slight armside fade. His fourseam fastball generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo. His curve has little depth and has primarily 12-6 movement.
