He may have only whiffed six in the last start but it seemed like he had almost every hitter on two strikes and just couldn't get those putaway pitches. The fly-ball rate is 41% and pitching in Oakland is a big improvement over pitching in New York for that facet. Every pitch has a whiff rate over 28% and his four-seam/slider combo has 140 total strikeouts. Oakland is 18th against the fastball but they are second against the slider, which is worth noting...
