Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is straight as an arrow, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His slider generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut, is much harder than usual, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 14 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run and has well above average velo. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2019) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth and is slightly harder than usual.
