BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical and has well above average velo. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, sweeps across the zone and has some two-plane movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2019) is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
