BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter has extreme cut action, results in many 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 has little sinking action compared to a true sinker, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly below average velo. His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His slider (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' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders and has short glove-side cut. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2015) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin and has slight armside fade.
