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 and has slight armside run. His change generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups. His sinker is blazing fast, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slight armside run. His curve has an exceptional bite and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His cutter generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has some natural sink and has strong cutting action. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 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 much less depth than expected and has primarily 12-6 movement.
