BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo, has slight armside run and has some added backspin. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2015) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin and has slight armside fade. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2015) has an exceptional bite, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
