BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slight armside run and has slightly below average velo. His cutter results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise" and has little cutting action. 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, has slight armside run and has slightly below average velo. His change is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities.
