BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has some natural sinking action. His curve has a sharp downward bite, is slightly harder than usual, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has less than expected depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change dives down out of the zone and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His fourseam fastball is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 14 of them in 2019) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has surprisingly little cutting action and has slightly above average velo.
