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 fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 13 of them in 2017) generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 13 of them in 2017) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has sweeping glove-side movement, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth and is slightly harder than usual. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2017) sweeps across the zone and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 6 of them in 2017) results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and is slightly firmer than usual. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2017) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, has heavy sink, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has well above average velo and has strong cutting action.
