Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His cutter results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly above average velo and has strong cutting action. His curve has a sharp downward bite, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has slight glove-side movement and has slightly below average velo. His change generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His sinker results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2018) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders.
