Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, has essentially average velo and has slight armside run. His change has surprising cut action and dives down out of the zone. His slider has below average velo, has primarily 12-6 movement, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement.
