BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has slightly above average velo. His cutter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2018) explodes on the hitter, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has well above average velo. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2018) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves, has a sharp downward bite and has slight glove-side movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2018) is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual and has slight cut action.
