BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter explodes on the hitter, has surprisingly little cutting action and has well above average velo. His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His change results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. His curve generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has sweeping glove-side movement, has a sharp downward bite and has slightly below average velo.
