BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has below average velo and has strong cutting action. His fourseam fastball comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2015) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves, has below average velo and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 13 of them in 2015) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight cut action, has slightly below average velo and has some natural sink to it. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 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 and has less armside run than typical.
