Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and has slight armside run. His slider is much harder than usual, has less than expected depth and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change dives down out of the zone, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has slight armside fade. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth and is slightly harder than usual.
