BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has less armside run than typical, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. 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 generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, 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 8 of them in 2015) explodes on the hitter, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has surprisingly little cutting action and has slightly above average velo.
