Basic description of 2020 pitches compared to other RHP:
His sinker is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities. His cutter has extreme cut action, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters and has some natural sink. His curve has an exceptional bite, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has slight glove-side movement and has slightly below average velo. His slider is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth and has short glove-side cut. His change is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has slight armside fade. His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical and has slightly below average velo.
