Basic description of 2020 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has some natural sinking action. His change is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 13 of them in 2020) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 10 of them in 2020) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has short glove-side cut. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2020) has an exceptional bite, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves, has slight glove-side movement and has slightly below average velo. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2020) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical.
