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 results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His sinker has surprisingly little armside run, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, 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 comes in below hitting speed. His cutter generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has some natural sink and has strong cutting action.
