BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His slider is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, has primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement. His change is slightly firmer than usual, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves and has primarily 12-6 movement. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2019) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has less armside run than typical.
