BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His slider is thrown extremely hard and generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders. His sinker is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slight armside run. His fourseam fastball is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some natural sinking action.
