BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His splitter results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' splitters, has some natural sink to it and has below average velo. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His cutter generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has some natural sink and has strong cutting action. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2019) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, dives down out of the zone, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slightly below average velo.
