Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair and has surprisingly little armside run. His slider is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His fourseam fastball is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, has some natural sinking action and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His curve is thrown extremely hard, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
