BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo. His cutter results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has slightly above average velo. His curve generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth, is slightly harder than usual and has slight glove-side movement. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it.
