His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has some natural sinking action. His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical and has essentially average velo. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His change generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it. His curve has a sharp downward bite and has slightly below average velo.
