Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
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 below average velo. His curve has below average velo, has a sharp downward bite and has slight glove-side movement. His slider sweeps across the zone, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has below average velo. His cutter is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly below average velo, has some natural sink and has strong cutting action. His sinker generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly below average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 19 of them in 2017) results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it.
