BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo and has some added backspin. His slider is thrown extremely hard, has much less depth than expected and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change is much firmer than usual, has a lot of backspin, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His curve has primarily 12-6 movement, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual, has little depth and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2016) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is blazing fast and has slight armside run.
