BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter explodes on the hitter, has sweeping cut action, is blazing fast, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slightly above average velo and has virtually no sinking action reminiscent of a true sinker. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth and has short glove-side cut.
