Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker is so slow that it is substantially gravitational and has less armside run than typical. His change comes in below hitting speed and has a lot of backspin. His fourseam fastball comes in below hitting speed, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His curve comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has sweeping glove-side movement, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has a sharp downward bite.
