His curve is thrown extremely hard, has primarily 12-6 movement, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, has little depth and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His cutter results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has well above average velo and has little cutting action. His sinker has less armside run than typical, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo. His change generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
