BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter has extreme cut action, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has slightly below average velo. His curve is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has sweeping glove-side movement, has a sharp downward bite and has slightly below average velo. His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical and has slightly below average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 6 of them in 2015) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade.
