BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 16 of them in 2017) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, explodes on the hitter, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2017) explodes on the hitter, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly above average velo and has strong cutting action. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2017) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2017) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual and has a lot of backspin.
