BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has good "rising" action, has well above average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut, is much harder than usual and has less than expected depth. His change has an extreme amount of backspin and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is blazing fast, has surprisingly little armside run and has virtually no sinking action reminiscent of a true sinker. His cutter generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, is blazing fast, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise" and has strong cutting action.
