BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His curve generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, is slightly harder than usual and has slight glove-side movement. His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His change generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, dives down out of the zone, is much firmer than usual, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His sinker has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2019) is thrown extremely hard and has less than expected depth.
