BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2014 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball comes in below hitting speed, has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has an obvious tail and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His change comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an obvious armside fade, dives down out of the zone and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups. His curve has an exceptional bite, comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves and has primarily 12-6 movement. His sinker comes in below hitting speed, has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has an obvious tail and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His splitter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2014) comes in below hitting speed, has dives down out of the zone, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' splitters, has an obvious armside fade and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2014) comes in below hitting speed, has heavy sink, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has surprisingly little cutting action.
