BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2020 pitches compared to other LHP:
His change is thrown extremely hard, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has surprising cut action, dives down out of the zone and generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups. His fourseam fastball results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has slightly above average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His cutter has some natural sink and has strong cutting action. His slider has exceptional depth and generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 14 of them in 2020) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sinking action.
