Basic description of 2010 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has an obvious tail, has below average velo, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some natural sinking action. His splitter results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' splitters. His curve comes in below hitting speed, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His cutter results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters.
