His slider has primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement. His fourseam fastball has less armside movement than typical, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His sinker generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo. His change using a circle change grip is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is much firmer than usual, has a lot of backspin, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has primarily 12-6 movement.
