BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His change generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slightly below average velo and has some natural sink to it. His cutter generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly above average velo, has some natural sink and has strong cutting action. His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has some natural sinking action. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has below average velo and has a sharp downward bite. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2019) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. 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.
