BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His curve is much harder than usual, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has little depth. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an obvious armside fade and dives down out of the zone.
