BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo. His curve is thrown extremely hard, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His slider is thrown extremely hard and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change has surprising cut action, dives down out of the zone, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
