BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical and has essentially average velo. His splitter generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' splitters, has some natural sink to it, has below average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' splitters. His curve has primarily 12-6 movement and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2018) is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth.
