BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2013 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has good "rising" action, has less armside movement than typical, has well above average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His slider generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 6 of them in 2013) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has surprising cut action, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual and has an extreme amount of backspin. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2013) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slightly above average velo.
