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, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His sinker has surprisingly little armside run and results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His change has slight cut action, is slightly firmer than usual and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and has primarily 12-6 movement.
