BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2014 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair and has some natural sinking action. His slider generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has short glove-side cut. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair and has some natural sinking action. His change is thrown extremely hard, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight cut action. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2014) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has surprisingly little cutting action and has slightly above average velo.
