His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly below average velo. His change has slightly below average velo. His curve results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has a sharp downward bite. His fourseam fastball has some natural sinking action, has slight armside run and has slightly below average velo. His cutter explodes on the hitter, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, has little cutting action and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters. His splitter is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' splitters, has below average velo and has movement that suggests a lot of backspin.
