BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, has a sharp downward bite and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 17 of them in 2018) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 10 of them in 2018) 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 below average velo. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2018) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2018) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and has below average velo. His slow curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2018) is a real yakker that's separated from his other curveball due to its big drop and slow speed.
