Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. His slider is thrown extremely hard, has less than expected depth and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change is thrown extremely hard, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His curve has a sharp downward bite, is slightly harder than usual and has slight glove-side movement. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo.
