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 more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin and has slightly below average velo. His curve has a sharp downward bite and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has slightly below average velo. 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.
