Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker has slight armside run. His curve generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual and has little depth. His change has an obvious armside fade, dives down out of the zone and generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups.
