BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has heavy sinking action, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. His cutter generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters, has well above average velo and has some natural sink. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has heavy sinking action and has essentially average velo. His change dives down out of the zone, is much firmer than usual and has slight armside fade. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 13 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone, has exceptional depth and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders.
