Basic description of 2014 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker has surprisingly little armside run and results in many groundballs. His fourseam fastball generates a godly amount of groundballs, has heavy sinking action, has much less armside movement than typical, generates fewer whiffs/swing than average compared to similar pitches and has essentially average velo. His slider results in many groundballs and has some two-plane movement. His change generates a ridiculously high number of swings & misses and results in flyballs rather than groundballs. His curve generates a ridiculously high number of swings & misses, is an extreme flyball pitch, has below average velo and has a sharp downward bite.
