Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has some natural sinking action. His fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His slider sweeps across the zone, has exceptional depth, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement.
