BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has slightly above average velo. His slider generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual and has less than expected depth. His sinker results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His change generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual and has slight armside fade. His curve generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2019) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has slightly above average velo.
