BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2014 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, has well above average velo and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His curve generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual, has little depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is blazing fast, has less armside run than typical and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2014) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade.
