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, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual and has some two-plane movement. His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has slightly above average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, is much harder than usual and has little depth. His cutter generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, has heavy sink, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly above average velo and has strong cutting action. His change results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
