BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other LHP:
His curve is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement and has little depth. His fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical and has slightly above average velo. His cutter is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, has little cutting action and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters. His sinker is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has slightly above average velo. His change generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual and has a lot of backspin. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2015) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual, has primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement.
