Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is blazing fast, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His sinker is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His curve has little depth, is slightly harder than usual, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change is thrown extremely hard, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin and has slight armside fade.
