BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action and has slightly below average velo. His slider generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has surprising cut action, has a lot of backspin and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly below average velo.
