Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast, has less armside movement than typical and has some added backspin. His sinker generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is blazing fast, has less armside run than typical and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker. His curve is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and is slightly harder than usual. His cutter has sweeping cut action, has well above average velo, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has some natural sink. His slider has short glove-side cut, is much harder than usual and has some two-plane movement. His change is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin.
