BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His change is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin. His slider results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves.
