BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker is so slow that it is substantially gravitational, has surprisingly little armside run and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2019) has below average velo, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2019) comes in below hitting speed, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has less armside movement than typical. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2019) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement.
