BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His change has below average velo, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball comes in below hitting speed and has some natural sinking action. His sinker is so slow that it is substantially gravitational, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His curve comes in below hitting speed, has sweeping glove-side movement and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
