BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slight armside run. His slider has primarily 12-6 movement. His sinker has slightly above average velo. His change is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight cut action. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2019) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth and has primarily 12-6 movement.
