BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His slider is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities. His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing 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 generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an obvious armside fade, is much firmer than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it.
