In 2014, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical and has slightly below average velo. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2014) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 9 of them in 2014) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2014) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slightly below average velo. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2014) has an exceptional bite, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has below average velo and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
