BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo. His splitter is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' splitters, has movement that suggests a lot of backspin and has slight armside fade. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 19 of them in 2018) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders and has much less depth than expected. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 19 of them in 2018) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and has slight glove-side movement. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2018) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has some natural sinking action.
