BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has well above average velo, has slightly less natural movement than typical and has some added backspin. His slider generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone, has below average velo and has some two-plane movement. His curve generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin.
