BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo. His slider sweeps across the zone, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His curve is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2019) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin.
