BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo and has slight armside run. His cutter results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has well above average velo, has little cutting action and has some natural sink. His fourseam fastball is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has well above average velo and has slight armside run. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2019) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin and has slight armside fade. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 14 of them in 2019) has primarily 12-6 movement, is much harder than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has a sharp downward bite.
