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