BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His cutter has slightly above average velo. His curve generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His change generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and is slightly firmer than usual. His slow curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2016) is a real yakker that's separated from his other curveball due to its big drop and slow speed.
