Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has some natural sinking action. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has heavy sinking action, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders and is much harder than usual. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2015) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, dives down out of the zone and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2015) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves, has below average velo and has a sharp downward bite.
