BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is blazing fast, has surprisingly little armside run and has some natural sinking action. His curve is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2018) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast, has less armside movement than typical and has some natural sinking action.
