BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker has less armside run than typical and has slightly above average velo. His slider is much harder than usual and has less than expected depth. His change generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2018) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth and has slight glove-side movement.
