BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2020 pitches compared to other RHP:
His curve has sweeping glove-side movement and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slight armside run. His sinker has an obvious tail, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His slider is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His splitter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 19 of them in 2020) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' splitters, has an obvious armside fade, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' splitters, has some natural sink to it and is slightly firmer than usual.
