BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has some natural sinking action. His curve generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, 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 change dives down out of the zone and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. 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 fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in more flyballs 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 18 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.
