BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball comes in below hitting speed, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some added backspin. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 6 of them in 2018) comes in below hitting speed, has very little depth, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2018) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, dives down out of the zone and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
