BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo, has slightly less natural movement than typical and has some added backspin. His slider has some two-plane movement. His sinker has surprisingly little armside run, 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 and has slight armside fade. His curve has an exceptional bite and has below average velo. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2018) has extreme cut action, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has some natural sink.
