Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and is blazing fast. His slider is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual and has some two-plane movement. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2019) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2019) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it.
