Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball is straight as an arrow, is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some added backspin. His slider generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone, is much harder than usual and has some two-plane movement. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker.
