BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has less armside run than typical and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His splitter is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities. His slider has short glove-side cut and has less than expected depth. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some added backspin. His curve generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 14 of them in 2015) explodes on the hitter, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has little cutting action and has slightly above average velo.
