Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly less natural movement than typical and has some added backspin. His curve has an exceptional bite and has below average velo. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His sinker generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has virtually no sinking action reminiscent of a true sinker. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade.
