Basic description of 2019 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has well above average velo and has some added backspin. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 19 of them in 2019) results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut, is much harder than usual and has some two-plane movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2019) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin and has slight armside fade. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 6 of them in 2019) has an exceptional bite, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has primarily 12-6 movement.
