Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slight armside run, has slightly above average velo and has some added backspin. His slider is thrown extremely hard, has much less depth than expected, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change is much firmer than usual, has a lot of backspin, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His curve generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement, is much harder than usual and has little depth.
