Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. His curve is much harder than usual and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo. His cutter results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has surprisingly little cutting action and has well above average velo.
