Basic description of 2010 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2010) has an obvious tail, has below average velo and generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2010) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has little depth. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2010) comes in below hitting speed, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, has primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2010) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin and has slight armside fade.
