Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter is blazing fast, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise" and has little cutting action. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some added backspin. His curve generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves and is slightly harder than usual. His change is much firmer than usual, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. 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, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo. His slider is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders.
