BETA Feature:
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, has much less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. 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 basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, 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 12 of them in 2019) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has less armside run than typical.
