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