BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball comes in below hitting speed, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some added backspin. His cutter comes in below hitting speed, has good "rise" and has strong cutting action. His change generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, has surprising cut action, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slightly below average velo. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 16 of them in 2015) comes in below hitting speed, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2015) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker.
