BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some added backspin. His sinker generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His curve has primarily 12-6 movement and is slightly harder than usual. His cutter is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has surprisingly little cutting action and has good "rise". His change generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has slight armside fade.
