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 fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His slider generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, has less than expected depth and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve has a sharp downward bite, has slight glove-side movement and has slightly below average velo. His change is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities. His cutter results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has strong cutting action.
