BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders. His fourseam fastball results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His change dives down out of the zone, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2018) results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth and has primarily 12-6 movement.
