BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has well above average velo, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slight armside run. His sinker is blazing fast, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His slider is thrown extremely hard and is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change is thrown extremely hard and has slight armside fade. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, is slightly harder than usual and has slight glove-side movement.
