BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly less natural movement than typical and has some added backspin. His slider is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, has less than expected depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His curve is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker has surprisingly little armside run, has well above average velo and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, has a lot of backspin and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
