Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter explodes on the hitter, has surprisingly little cutting action, has well above average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters. 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 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 has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slight armside run. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. 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.
