BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2014 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter has good "rise", results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has slightly above average velo. His sinker has less armside run than typical and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His change is slightly firmer than usual, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement and has a sharp downward bite. His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo.
