BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has much less armside movement than typical, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo. His slider sweeps across the zone, results in 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, is slightly harder than usual and has slight glove-side movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 16 of them in 2019) is thrown extremely hard, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin.
