Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo. His slider generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 10 of them in 2019) dives down out of the zone, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade.
