BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His slider sweeps across the zone, has exceptional depth and results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His cutter generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, has heavy sink, has slightly above average velo and has strong cutting action. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has sweeping glove-side movement, is much harder than usual, has little depth and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2017) generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and is slightly firmer than usual.
