Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has well above average velo. His curve is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and is slightly harder than usual. His change dives down out of the zone and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo.
