BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has slight armside run and has slightly below average velo. His change generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, 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 basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 13 of them in 2015) explodes on the hitter, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has surprisingly little cutting action.
