Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other LHP:
His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 9 of them in 2016) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has below average velo. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2016) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has less armside movement than typical. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2016) is so slow that it is substantially gravitational, 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 (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2016) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has surprising cut action, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, has below average velo and has a lot of backspin. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2016) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth.
