Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter explodes on the hitter, is blazing fast, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters and has surprisingly little cutting action. 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, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slightly above average velo. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has slight armside fade. His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slight armside run and has some added backspin. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves and generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2015) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders and has short glove-side cut.
