His sinker results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers. His change results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His slider generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo. His curve has very little depth, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, is slightly harder than usual, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
