BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His change has an obvious armside fade and is much firmer than usual. His slider generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, has primarily 12-6 movement and is much harder than usual. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and has slight armside run.
