BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2014 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo. His cutter results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has well above average velo. His curve has slight glove-side movement. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His slow curve is a real yakker that's separated from his other curveball due to its big drop and slow speed.
