BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo. His curve is slightly harder than usual, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His cutter is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sink. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2018) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2018) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin.
