Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 16 of them in 2015) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has less armside movement than typical. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 14 of them in 2015) generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has below average velo, has good "rise" and has strong cutting action. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2015) has surprising cut action, dives down out of the zone, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups and has below average velo. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2015) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has primarily 12-6 movement. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2015) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has less armside run than typical.
