BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has heavy sinking action, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has less armside run than typical. His slider is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve has very little depth, has sweeping glove-side movement, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and is much harder than usual. His change generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups. His cutter is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sink. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers.
