BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo. His curve has slight glove-side movement. His sinker has surprisingly little armside run, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slightly above average velo. His change is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has surprising cut action.
