Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His slider generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and is much harder than usual. His fourseam fastball is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo, has slightly less natural movement than typical and has some added backspin. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 16 of them in 2019) 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.
