Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His change results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and has less than expected depth. His curve is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
