BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2020 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has slightly above average velo. His slider sweeps across the zone, has exceptional depth, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders and generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders. His cutter results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly above average velo, has some natural sink and has strong cutting action. His splitter is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' splitters, has some natural sink to it and is slightly firmer than usual. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 9 of them in 2020) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slightly above average velo.
