BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other LHP:
His cutter has extreme cut action and has some natural sink. His fourseam fastball has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His curve is slightly harder than usual and has slight glove-side movement. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it. His slow curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2018) is a real yakker that's separated from his other curveball due to its big drop and slow speed.
