Basic description of 2015 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His curve is much harder than usual, has little depth and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 16 of them in 2015) is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an obvious armside fade, dives down out of the zone and is slightly firmer than usual.
