Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities. His fourseam fastball generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His slider has primarily 12-6 movement, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it.
