BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is blazing fast, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has slight armside run. His cutter is blazing fast. His splitter is thrown extremely hard, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' splitters and has some natural sink to it. His slider results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and is much harder than usual. His curve results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2018) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is blazing fast and has some natural sinking action.
