BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His cutter is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair and has little cutting action. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slight armside run. His change generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His sinker is blazing fast. His slider generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual and has some two-plane movement. His curve is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement and has a sharp downward bite.
