Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2015) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast, has much less armside movement than typical and has some added backspin. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2015) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2015) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has a sharp downward bite. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2015) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups and has an extreme amount of backspin.
