Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker has less armside run than typical and has some natural sinking action. His slider is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth and results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His cutter generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has well above average velo and has good "rise". His curve has an exceptional bite, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves.
