BETA Feature:
Basic description of 2018 pitches compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. His splitter is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' splitters, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' splitters and has slight armside fade. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 16 of them in 2018) generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an extreme amount of backspin, is slightly firmer than usual and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2018) has very little depth, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. 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.
