BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2017 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2017) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has a sharp downward bite.
