Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has well above average velo. His slider sweeps across the zone, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His sinker is blazing fast, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has some natural sinking action. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it.
