BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His cutter has well above average velo, has good "rise" and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters. His slider sweeps across the zone, has below average velo and has some two-plane movement. His sinker has less armside run than typical, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has some natural sinking action. His change has surprising cut action and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2019) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action and has slightly below average velo.
