BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities. His change is slightly firmer than usual. His curve has an exceptional bite, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His sinker has surprisingly little armside run, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slightly above average velo.
