BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo, has less armside run than typical and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2015) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 6 of them in 2015) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has sweeping glove-side movement and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2015) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, has heavy sink, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has well above average velo.
