BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slight armside run. His cutter has good "rise", has little cutting action and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2015) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an obvious armside fade, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups and is much firmer than usual.
