Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other LHP:
His sinker has surprisingly little armside run and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His change has surprising cut action, dives down out of the zone, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slightly below average velo. His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His curve has very little depth, has primarily 12-6 movement, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and is slightly harder than usual.
