BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities. His curve has little depth and has primarily 12-6 movement.
