BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2020 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, is straight as an arrow, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has well above average velo. His curve has an exceptional bite, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has slight glove-side movement and has slightly below average velo. His slider sweeps across the zone and has some two-plane movement. His sinker has surprisingly little armside run, has well above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His change has surprising cut action, dives down out of the zone and is slightly firmer than usual.
