BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, explodes on the hitter, has less armside movement than typical, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2016) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 9 of them in 2016) has an exceptional bite, has below average velo and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2016) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin and has slight armside fade.
