BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has an obvious tail, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is blazing fast and has some natural sinking action. His slider generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has short glove-side cut. His change is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an obvious armside fade, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball has an obvious tail, is blazing fast and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2017) has very little depth, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has primarily 12-6 movement.
