Basic description of 2014 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His slider results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His fourseam fastball generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo. 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 curve has very little depth, is much harder than usual, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
