BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has much less armside movement than typical and has well above average velo. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual, has a sharp downward bite and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His slider is thrown extremely hard and is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders.
