Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo, has slightly less natural movement than typical and has some added backspin. His sinker results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His slider has some two-plane movement. His cutter has heavy sink, has extreme cut action, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters and has slightly below average velo. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His curve has an exceptional bite, comes in below hitting speed and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
