BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo and has some added backspin. His curve has an exceptional bite, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has sweeping glove-side movement and is slightly harder than usual. His slider generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and has some two-plane movement. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 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, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 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 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.
