BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has heavy sinking action, has an obvious tail, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly below average velo. His slider comes in below hitting speed, sweeps across the zone, has exceptional depth, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 16 of them in 2019) has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slight armside run and has slightly below average velo. 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.
