Basic description of 2014 pitches compared to other RHP:
His change is much firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His slider results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. 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 less armside run than typical.
