Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has well above average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His curve is slightly harder than usual. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, dives down out of the zone and is slightly firmer than usual. His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo.
