Basic description of 2016 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has some natural sinking action and has well above average velo. His slider has short glove-side cut, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His sinker results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo and has slight armside run. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it.
