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, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has some natural sink. His fourseam fastball has below average velo, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some natural sinking action. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 16 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it.
