BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities. His change is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and dives down out of the zone. His curve is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite, is slightly harder than usual and has slight glove-side movement. His fourseam fastball has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider has exceptional depth, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His cutter is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is blazing fast, has little cutting action and has some natural sink.
