His slider has less than expected depth and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change has a lot of backspin. His cutter generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' cutters, has good "rise", results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has slightly above average velo.
