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 generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders and has primarily 12-6 movement. His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 16 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin and is slightly firmer than usual. 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.
