Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and has primarily 12-6 movement. His cutter explodes on the hitter, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters, has surprisingly little cutting action and has well above average velo. His change generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slight armside run. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 16 of them in 2018) results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and is slightly harder than usual.
