BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo and has some added backspin. His curve has an exceptional bite, is slightly harder than usual, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His slider results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slightly above average velo. His change is thrown extremely hard, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin and has slight armside fade. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2019) generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has some natural sink and has strong cutting action.
