BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His slider sweeps across the zone, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. His sinker has an obvious tail. His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slight armside run. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2018) generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and has slight glove-side movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2018) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade.
