Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His slider generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual and has less than expected depth. His change has surprising cut action and results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His curve has a sharp downward bite, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slightly below average velo. His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has less armside run than typical.
