His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, has well above average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slight armside run. His slider is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change is thrown extremely hard, dives down out of the zone, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, has sweeping glove-side movement, has little depth, is slightly harder than usual and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
