Basic description of 2020 pitches compared to other RHP:
His change is thrown extremely hard, dives down out of the zone, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has heavy sinking action, is blazing fast and has slight armside run. His sinker has heavy sinking action, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair and has an obvious tail. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual, has primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement.
