BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and is much harder than usual. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2019) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight cut action, has a lot of backspin and is slightly firmer than usual.
