Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His slider is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth and has primarily 12-6 movement. His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has well above average velo. His curve is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves and has a sharp downward bite. His change (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' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight cut action and has an extreme amount of backspin.
