Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His curve has an exceptional bite, has slight glove-side movement and has slightly below average velo. His slider results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. His change has a lot of backspin. His cutter generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise", results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has slightly above average velo.
