Basic description of 2014 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His curve is much harder than usual and results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change has an obvious armside fade and dives down out of the zone.
