Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider is much harder than usual and has less than expected depth. His curve results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and is slightly harder than usual.
