BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His slider has less than expected depth and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His fourseam fastball generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His curve generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has very little depth, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves, is slightly harder than usual and has primarily 12-6 movement.
