His sinker has less armside run than typical, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers.

His slider generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth. His curve has a sharp downward bite, has slight glove-side movement and has slightly below average velo. His change has slight armside fade.
