Pitch F/X disagrees with you. The issue is his arm angle. He is not an over the top guy, so his pitch is going to be coming across the zone to begin with, so it is going to not look like it is going 12-6, but that is simply because of the release angle, not anything to do with the spin of the baseball.
A slurve, on the chart shown on the last page, would be more to the to the left on the chart when compared to other "slurves".
