BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker has less armside run than typical, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slightly above average velo. His change generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His curve is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His fourseam fastball is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo.
