BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has good "rising" action, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His curve has an exceptional bite. His change generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin and is slightly firmer than usual.
