Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is blazing fast, has some natural sinking action and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo, has slight armside run and has some natural sinking action. His slider sweeps across the zone, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His change generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has little depth.
