Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter explodes on the hitter, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has well above average velo and has little cutting action. His sinker results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His change is much firmer than usual, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His curve generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement.
