BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2014 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slight armside run and has slightly below average velo. His cutter results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has little cutting action. His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has an obvious tail and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His change has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His curve has very little depth, has primarily 12-6 movement and is slightly harder than usual. His slider has primarily 12-6 movement. His splitter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2014) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' splitters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters and has some natural sink to it.
