BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has slightly above average velo. 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 (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 19 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin. 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.
