His fourseam fastball is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has an obvious tail, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His curve has an exceptional bite, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves. His change generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, has below average velo, has a lot of backspin and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His sinker generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker, has slight armside run and has slightly below average velo. His cutter comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise" and has little cutting action.
