BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has heavy sinking action, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His slider comes in below hitting speed, sweeps across the zone, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has heavy sinking action, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slight armside run and has slightly below average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2019) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an obvious armside fade, dives down out of the zone and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His splitter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2019) has dives down out of the zone, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' splitters, has an obvious armside fade and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters.
