Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His slider generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo. His curve generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has very little depth, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves, is slightly harder than usual and has primarily 12-6 movement.
