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, has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider is thrown extremely hard, has much less depth than expected and generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth and has slight glove-side movement.
