BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some added backspin. His change is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an extreme amount of backspin and has slightly below average velo. His sinker generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His cutter results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has some natural sink. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 14 of them in 2015) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His slow curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2015) is a real yakker that's separated from his other curveball due to its big drop and slow speed.
