Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has an obvious tail and has slightly below average velo. His change generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, has below average velo and has a lot of backspin. His curve has an exceptional bite and generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slightly below average velo. His cutter is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has below average velo and has good "rise".
