BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2020 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast, has some natural sinking action and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair. His slider is thrown extremely hard. His curve generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and is slightly harder than usual. His change is thrown extremely hard and has a lot of backspin. His splitter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2020) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' splitters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters and has slight armside fade.
