Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sinking action. His cutter generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, has heavy sink, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly below average velo and has strong cutting action. His fourseam fastball is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has 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, sweeps across the zone, has exceptional depth and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 10 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
