Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His slider is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. His curve generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and is slightly harder than usual. His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo. His change is thrown extremely hard, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it.
