BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter comes in below hitting speed, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise" and has strong cutting action. His sinker is so slow that it is substantially gravitational, has surprisingly little armside run, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His curve has little depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His fourseam fastball comes in below hitting speed, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has good "rising" action and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His splitter results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' splitters, has movement that suggests a lot of backspin and has slightly below average velo.
