BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His cutter has heavy sink, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters and has strong cutting action. His slider sweeps across the zone, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His change generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. 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, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo.
