Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slight armside run. His slider comes in below hitting speed, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2017) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 13 of them in 2017) has an exceptional bite, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2017) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an obvious armside fade, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slightly below average velo and has some natural sink to it.
