Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His slider has some two-plane movement. His splitter is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' splitters, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' splitters, is slightly firmer than usual and has slight armside fade. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo and has slight armside run. His sinker has some natural sinking action. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slightly below average velo. His cutter is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters and has little cutting action.
