BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slight armside run and has slightly below average velo. His change generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight cut action, has a lot of backspin and has slightly below average velo. His curve is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has a sharp downward bite. His sinker is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly below average velo. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2015) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise" and has little cutting action.
