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 well above average velo, has slight armside run and has some natural sinking action. His slider generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and has short glove-side cut. His fourseam fastball is blazing fast and has some natural sinking action. His change dives down out of the zone, is much firmer than usual and has slight armside fade. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2017) has very little depth, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
