Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 17 of them in 2019) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 13 of them in 2019) results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it. His curve (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' curves, is slightly harder than usual and has primarily 12-6 movement. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 10 of them in 2019) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, has less than expected depth and has primarily 12-6 movement.
