BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His slider is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, has much less depth than expected and is much harder than usual. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His curve has below average velo, has a sharp downward bite, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His change results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His cutter is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters, has some natural sink and has strong cutting action. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2015) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slightly below average velo. His slow curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2015) is a real yakker that's separated from his other curveball due to its big drop and slow speed.
