BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has an obvious tail, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has some natural sinking action. His cutter results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise" and has little cutting action. His slider is much harder than usual and has less than expected depth. His change has an obvious armside fade, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slight armside run. His curve (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' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has little depth.
