BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2014 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in somewhat more flyballs 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, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight cut action, has a lot of backspin and has slightly below average velo. His curve has an exceptional bite, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His splitter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2014) has movement that suggests an extreme amount of backspin, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' splitters and has below average velo. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2014) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has surprisingly little cutting action, has good "rise" and has slightly above average velo.
