BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2020 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has well above average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slight armside run. His slider is thrown extremely hard and generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has a sharp downward bite. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2020) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade.
