Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His cutter has extreme cut action, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has slightly below average velo. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, has a sharp downward bite and has slightly below average velo. His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action and has slightly below average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 19 of them in 2016) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade.
