His sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly below average velo. His change results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade, has slightly below average velo and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. His slider results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has below average velo, has primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement.
