Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has less armside run than typical. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has exceptional depth. His change results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and is slightly firmer than usual. His fourseam fastball results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His curve has an exceptional bite and is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves.
