Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and has less than expected depth. His splitter has movement that suggests a lot of backspin and has slight armside fade. His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has good "rising" action and has essentially average velo. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2015) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an extreme amount of backspin and has slight armside fade. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2015) explodes on the hitter, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has little cutting action.
