Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His slider results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His fourseam fastball results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. His change generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it.
