BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker has surprisingly little armside run. His change has surprising cut action, dives down out of the zone, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slightly below average velo. 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 curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 9 of them in 2018) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves.
