BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, has less armside movement than typical and has essentially average velo. His slider sweeps across the zone, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His change has surprising cut action, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run, has slightly below average velo and has some natural sinking action. His cutter is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, has some natural sink and has strong cutting action. His curve generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has a sharp downward bite.
