Basic description of 2020 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball is straight as an arrow, has some natural sinking action and has well above average velo. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and has some two-plane movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2020) is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has surprising cut action and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups.
