BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His cutter results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly below average velo and has strong cutting action. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, has below average velo, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves and has a sharp downward bite. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 6 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, has below average velo and has slight armside run.
