BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2014 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo. His cutter has good "rise" and has slightly above average velo. His curve generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and has slight glove-side movement. His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 6 of them in 2014) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin and has slight armside fade.
