BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has slight armside run. His change has an obvious armside fade, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups and is much firmer than usual. His slider generates an extremely 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 10 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has an obvious tail, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo.
