I know he had flyball issues earlier in his career, and that seems to be better now, and maybe that's why he throws so many pitches in the zone. But it seems to me if he followed up some of those big breaking-balls with high fastballs, he could get hitters to swing under them all the time. I dunno, just hoping someone with more pitching knowledge than me can provide suggestions.
PS The pitch that spurred on this question was an 0-2 fastball low in the zone to a righty that went for a base hit (the previous pitch was a breaking ball for a looking strike).
