BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His splitter generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' splitters. His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has slightly below average velo. His fourseam fastball results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has primarily 12-6 movement. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 10 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has little depth.
