Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo, has less armside run than typical and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His slider is thrown extremely hard, has less than expected depth and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve has an exceptional bite, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves and is slightly harder than usual. His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His change is thrown extremely hard, has an obvious armside fade, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it.
