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