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 basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slightly above average velo. His change is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo. 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.
