Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has less armside run than typical and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His splitter is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' splitters, has movement that suggests a lot of backspin and has slight armside fade. His fourseam fastball generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly below average velo and has some added backspin. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone and generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite, has slight glove-side movement and has slightly below average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2016) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has an extreme amount of backspin.
