BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, is slightly harder than usual and has slight glove-side movement. His change generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. 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, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo.
