Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His fourseam fastball results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo, has slightly less natural movement than typical and has some added backspin. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His curve results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has primarily 12-6 movement.
