BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker is so slow that it is substantially gravitational, has heavy sinking action, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His change comes in below hitting speed, has an obvious armside fade, dives down out of the zone and results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His slider comes in below hitting speed.
