Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo. His curve is thrown extremely hard, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement and has little depth. His cutter is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise" and has little cutting action. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2015) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups and is slightly firmer than usual. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 14 of them in 2015) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has less armside run than typical. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2015) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual, has primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement.
