Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball is straight as an arrow, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo. His curve has an exceptional bite, has sweeping glove-side movement and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has surprising cut action, is slightly firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it.
