BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His splitter has some natural sink to it and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' splitters. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual, has less than expected depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His curve results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo.
