Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker has surprisingly little armside run and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His change dives down out of the zone, is slightly firmer than usual and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His slider has primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2018) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, has essentially average velo and has some added backspin.
