BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His slider sweeps across the zone, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. His sinker has an obvious tail. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo and has slight armside run. His curve results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and has slight glove-side movement. His change has an obvious armside fade, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slightly below average velo and has some natural sink to it.
