His fourseam fastball has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo and has slight armside run. His curve has a sharp downward bite and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has a lot of backspin, is slightly firmer than usual, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His slider results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement.
