BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2013 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2013) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has much less armside movement than typical and has essentially average velo. His sinker (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' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has slightly above average velo. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2013) has very little depth, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has sweeping glove-side movement and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves.
