BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has well above average velo and has slight armside run. His slider is thrown extremely hard, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has much less depth than expected. His change is thrown extremely hard, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His curve is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual and has slight glove-side movement. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 6 of them in 2016) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has well above average velo.
