Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo. His fourseam fastball is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and has slight armside run. His change dives down out of the zone and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His curve generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and has slight glove-side movement.
