BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker has surprisingly little armside run, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His slider has some two-plane movement. His change results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 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 and has essentially average velo.
