BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is blazing fast, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and has slight armside run. His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has well above average velo and has slight armside run. His change generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His cutter is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters and has slightly above average velo. His curve has an exceptional bite and results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 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.
