BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has good "rising" action, has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth.
