BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has well above average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slight armside run and has some added backspin. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, is much harder than usual and has less than expected depth. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 10 of them in 2019) is thrown extremely hard and has slight armside fade.
