Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an obvious armside fade, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it. His sinker has slight armside run, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. His slider is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has less than expected depth and has primarily 12-6 movement.
