BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is straight as an arrow and has below average velo. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it. His slider has short glove-side cut and has some two-plane movement. His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has slightly below average velo. His curve comes in below hitting speed, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His slow curve is a real yakker that's separated from his other curveball due to its big drop and slow speed. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 17 of them in 2019) has heavy sink, has sweeping cut action, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters and has below average velo. His splitter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' splitters, has surprising cut action, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters, has below average velo and has movement that suggests a lot of backspin.
