Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise", has little cutting action and has slightly below average velo. His fourseam fastball has below average velo and has slight armside run. His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has an obvious tail and has below average velo. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2015) has very little depth, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2015) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade, has slightly below average velo and has some natural sink to it. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2015) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth.
