BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and 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 is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. 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, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual, has little depth and has primarily 12-6 movement.
