Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His slider is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities. His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2019) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an obvious armside fade, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it.
