His sinker results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has some natural sinking action. His curve has primarily 12-6 movement, is slightly harder than usual and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change has an obvious armside fade, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups and is much firmer than usual. His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slight armside run. His slider has much less depth than expected, has primarily 12-6 movement and is much harder than usual.
