BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slight armside run. His cutter is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has little cutting action and has slightly above average velo. His change results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2018) has an exceptional bite, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
