BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His cutter has slightly above average velo and has strong cutting action. His change is thrown extremely hard, 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, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, has a sharp downward bite and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
