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