Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly less natural movement than typical and has some added backspin. His slider is thrown extremely hard, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has much less depth than expected, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and has short glove-side cut. His change is thrown extremely hard, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin.
