Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His change is thrown extremely hard, has slight cut action, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2015) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has slightly above average velo. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 14 of them in 2015) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His slider (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' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2015) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite, is slightly harder than usual and has slight glove-side movement.
