BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses 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 and has strong cutting action. His curve generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and is slightly firmer than usual.
