BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, has much less armside movement than typical, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly above average velo. His slider generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual and has some two-plane movement. His sinker results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His curve has a sharp downward bite, is slightly harder than usual and has slight glove-side movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2019) has an obvious armside fade, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has slightly above average velo.
