BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2013 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is straight as an arrow, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has good "rising" action, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo. His slider has short glove-side cut, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His curve has an exceptional bite and has below average velo. His splitter is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters and has movement that suggests a lot of backspin.
