BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2014 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has less armside run than typical and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His slider generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and has less than expected depth. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo and has some added backspin. His splitter has movement that suggests a lot of backspin and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' splitters. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2014) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an extreme amount of backspin and has slight armside fade. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2014) explodes on the hitter, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has slightly below average velo.
