BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2014 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter has extreme cut action. His curve has an exceptional bite, has sweeping glove-side movement, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slightly below average velo. His sinker has less armside run than typical. His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His change results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2014) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders and has short glove-side cut.
