BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and has some two-plane movement. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, has a sharp downward bite and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker.
