BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His cutter generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly above average velo and has strong cutting action. His change is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slightly below average velo and has some natural sink to it. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, has a sharp downward bite, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slightly below average velo. His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has less armside run than typical. His slow curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2019) is a real yakker that's separated from his other curveball due to its big drop and slow speed.
