His fourseam fastball results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His curve generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves. His change has surprising cut action, has below average velo, has an extreme amount of backspin and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
