BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical, has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some added backspin. His curve is much harder than usual, has a sharp downward bite, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 9 of them in 2018) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth.
