BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His slider is thrown extremely hard, has exceptional depth, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders and has primarily 12-6 movement. His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is straight as an arrow and has well above average velo. His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, has surprisingly little armside run and generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His curve has an exceptional bite and is much harder than usual. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2018) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an obvious armside fade, dives down out of the zone and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
