BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His cutter generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has some natural sink and has strong cutting action. His curve results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups and is much firmer than usual. His slow curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2015) is a real yakker that's separated from his other curveball due to its big drop and slow speed.
