BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an obvious armside fade, is much firmer than usual 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 (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2017) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, explodes on the hitter, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast and has slight armside run.
