BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2020 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo and has some added backspin. His change generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight cut action, has a lot of backspin and has slightly below average velo. His slider generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2020) has an exceptional bite, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has primarily 12-6 movement.
