Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is straight as an arrow, is blazing fast and has good "rising" action. His change is much firmer than usual and has a lot of backspin. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2018) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and has some two-plane movement.
