Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has well above average velo. His fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His slider generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has slightly above average velo. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin, is slightly firmer than usual and has slight armside fade. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 19 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has primarily 12-6 movement.
