BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities. His curve is much harder than usual, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change dives down out of the zone, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade.
