Basic description of 2014 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball comes in below hitting speed, has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has an obvious tail and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His slider comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders and has primarily 12-6 movement. His sinker comes in below hitting speed, has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has an obvious tail and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His change comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an obvious armside fade, dives down out of the zone and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2014) has an exceptional bite, comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves and has primarily 12-6 movement.
