Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His change dives down out of the zone, is slightly firmer than usual, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His curve generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, is slightly harder than usual and has slight glove-side movement. His slider is thrown extremely hard, has primarily 12-6 movement, has less than expected depth and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders.
