Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has much less armside movement than typical, has well above average velo and has some added backspin. His sinker is blazing fast, has less armside run than typical, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His curve has an exceptional bite, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, is slightly harder than usual and has primarily 12-6 movement. His slider has short glove-side cut, is much harder than usual and has some two-plane movement. His cutter has sweeping cut action, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sink. His change is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups and results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
