Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker has heavy sinking action, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His slider has exceptional depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, has essentially average velo and has slight armside run. His change dives down out of the zone, is slightly firmer than usual and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
