His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2022) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight cut action and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 5 of them in 2022) comes in below hitting speed, has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly less natural movement than typical.
