BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has some natural sinking action. His change dives down out of the zone and generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups. His slider is thrown extremely hard, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has less than expected depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His curve generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite, is slightly harder than usual and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His fourseam fastball is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo.
