BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His slider is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has much less depth than expected and generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is straight as an arrow, has essentially average velo and has some added backspin. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 19 of them in 2019) has an exceptional bite, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves and has slightly below average velo.
