BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has much less armside movement than typical, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 19 of them in 2018) generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 13 of them in 2018) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run and has slightly above average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 6 of them in 2018) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has surprising cut action, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it.
