BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, has a sharp downward bite, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slightly below average velo. His sinker has slightly below average velo. His cutter has extreme cut action, has below average velo and has some natural sink. His fourseam fastball has below average velo, has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His change results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His slow curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2019) is a real yakker that's separated from his other curveball due to its big drop and slow speed.
