BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slight armside run. His slider generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, has primarily 12-6 movement, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2019) generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, has an extreme amount of backspin and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
