BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. His splitter generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' splitters, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' splitters, has slight armside fade and has slightly below average velo. His slider has primarily 12-6 movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 18 of them in 2018) generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin, is slightly firmer than usual and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 of them in 2018) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has an obvious tail, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has little sinking action compared to a true sinker.
