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, has some natural sinking action and has slightly above average velo. His change is much firmer than usual, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His slider is thrown extremely hard, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and has short glove-side cut. His curve is much harder than usual, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has a sharp downward bite.
