BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has slightly below average velo. His cutter results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has strong cutting action. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has below average velo and has a sharp downward bite. His change generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has slightly below average velo. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2016) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders.
