BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His cutter has heavy sink, has extreme cut action, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth and is slightly harder than usual. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it.
