BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His change has below average velo and has some natural sink to it. His cutter has good "rise", results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has slightly below average velo. His sinker has below average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, has below average velo and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His fourseam fastball comes in below hitting speed, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2019) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone, has exceptional depth and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders.
