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, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters and has little cutting action. 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 slightly above average velo. His change generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin.
