BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His fourseam fastball is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some added backspin. His slider generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. His change results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 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 little depth, is slightly harder than usual and has primarily 12-6 movement.
