BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical and has essentially average velo. His slider has short glove-side cut and has some two-plane movement. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, dives down out of the zone, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups and is much firmer than usual. His curve has an exceptional bite and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His sinker has less armside run than typical and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers.
