Basic description of 2020 pitches compared to other LHP:
His change has below average velo, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His cutter has below average velo, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has strong cutting action. His sinker has below average velo and has less armside run than typical. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, has below average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 6 of them in 2020) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2020) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut, has below average velo and has less than expected depth.
