BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2020 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and has slight armside run. His curve 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. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 16 of them in 2020) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 16 of them in 2020) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it.
