BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has well above average velo. His curve is much harder than usual, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His change is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His slider is thrown extremely hard, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. His sinker is blazing fast, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run.
