BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo. His curve generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has slight glove-side movement and has slightly below average velo. His slider sweeps across the zone, has exceptional depth, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and has below average velo. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 6 of them in 2018) has heavy sink, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, has extreme cut action and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters.
