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. His change is much firmer than usual, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade.
