BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has well above average velo. His curve is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite, is slightly harder than usual and has primarily 12-6 movement. His sinker is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2018) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has some natural sink and has strong cutting action.
