BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2020 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 slightly less natural movement than typical and has some added backspin. His curve has an exceptional bite, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual and has slight glove-side movement. His cutter is blazing fast, has extreme cut action and generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters. His slider sweeps across the zone, is much harder than usual and has some two-plane movement. His sinker is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers.
