BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slight armside run. His change has surprising cut action, dives down out of the zone, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slightly below average velo. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 11 of them in 2018) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth and has primarily 12-6 movement.
