His change is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His slider is thrown extremely hard, has much less depth than expected, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has primarily 12-6 movement.
