BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider has primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement. His change has an obvious armside fade and is much firmer than usual.
