BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slight armside run. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual, has less than expected depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has an obvious tail, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2019) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has surprising cut action, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin.
