Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slightly above average velo. His slider generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His fourseam fastball is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His curve generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, is slightly harder than usual and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change is slightly firmer than usual, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it.
