BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo and has some added backspin. His slider is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities. His change generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has a lot of backspin. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2018) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo, has less armside run than typical and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker.
