BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has strong cutting action. His fourseam fastball generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His curve comes in below hitting speed, has sweeping glove-side movement, has a sharp downward bite and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade 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.
