Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has less armside run than typical. His change dives down out of the zone and is slightly firmer than usual. His slider has exceptional depth, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical.
