Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has well above average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some added backspin. His change generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin, is slightly firmer than usual and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His slider has short glove-side cut.
