Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has well above average velo and has slight armside run. His curve generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual and has slight glove-side movement. His change is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His slider is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, has much less depth than expected and has primarily 12-6 movement.
