Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slight armside run. His cutter has good "rise", has little cutting action and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has slight armside fade.
