BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball is straight as an arrow, is blazing fast, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has good "rising" action. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 17 of them in 2015) is thrown extremely hard, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and has less than expected depth. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2015) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and has primarily 12-6 movement.
