Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has below average velo and has little cutting action. His fourseam fastball has below average velo and has slight armside run. His change is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, has below average velo and has slight armside fade. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2015) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has an obvious tail, has below average velo and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2015) comes in below hitting speed, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, has primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2015) has very little depth, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
