Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His splitter comes in below hitting speed, has dives down out of the zone, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' splitters, has an obvious armside fade and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters. His fourseam fastball comes in below hitting speed, has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has an obvious tail and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2015) comes in below hitting speed, has heavy sink, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has surprisingly little cutting action. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2015) comes in below hitting speed, has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has an obvious tail and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers.
