BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has good "rising" action, has less armside movement than typical and has slightly above average velo. His curve generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves and is much harder than usual. His slider is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders and is much harder than usual. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 19 of them in 2017) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slightly above average velo and has virtually no sinking action reminiscent of a true sinker.
