BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His slider is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and has less than expected depth. His curve has a sharp downward bite, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slightly below average velo. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 16 of them in 2019) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 14 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has surprising cut action, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups and is slightly firmer than usual.
