Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has surprising cut action, dives down out of the zone, has below average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His fourseam fastball comes in below hitting speed, has less armside movement than typical and has some natural sinking action. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 9 of them in 2019) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2019) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has a sharp downward bite.
