BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has heavy sinking action, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and has slight armside run. His change has an obvious armside fade, dives down out of the zone and generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His slider comes in below hitting speed, has short glove-side cut, has less than expected depth and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders.
