BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has good "rising" action, has less armside movement than typical and has well above average velo. His curve generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves and is much harder than usual. His slider generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2015) 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 and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker.
