His fourseam fastball has slightly below average velo and has some added backspin. His sinker has little sinking action compared to a true sinker, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly below average velo. His curve has an exceptional bite, has below average velo, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His cutter results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly below average velo and has strong cutting action. His change generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth.
