BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slight armside run. His splitter results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' splitters and has slight armside fade. His slider has primarily 12-6 movement. His change generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin and is slightly firmer than usual. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers.
